Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any site hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end because not only does it compress data more effectively than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved 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. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to generate backups at a higher speed and on reduced disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. That way, we can always restore any kind of content that you could 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 certainly the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data at a higher speed than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will quicken any kind of website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that is provided by the large number of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 enables us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and keep them for a month as they'll take much less space than standard backups and will be generated much quicker without loading the servers.
