Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account on our end since not only does it compress data more efficiently than algorithms used by other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform due to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backup copies much more rapidly and on reduced disk space, so we can have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always restore any content that you may have removed by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which 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 website content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will boost any kind of site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the multitude of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and save 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.
