Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end as 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 drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform owing to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backup copies much more rapidly and on reduced disk space, so we will have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore the content that you may 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 is among the best algorithms out there and positively the best 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. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate any kind of website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for a month as they'll take much less space than regular backups and will be generated much quicker without loading the servers.
