Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backup copies faster and on less disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always recover any kind of content that you may have erased by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's one of the best algorithms out there and definitely the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will boost any Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that is provided by the numerous clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for one month as they will take a smaller amount of space than typical backups and will be created much more quickly without loading the servers.
