Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account on our end because not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform because it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies much more rapidly and on lower 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 could always restore all content that you could have erased by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's one of the best algorithms out there and certainly the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will boost any kind of Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. This high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the large number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for one month as they will take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
