Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The ZFS file system which operates on our cloud web hosting platform employs a compression algorithm identified as LZ4. The aforementioned is considerably faster and better than every other algorithm you will find, especially for compressing and uncompressing non-binary data i.e. internet content. LZ4 even uncompresses data quicker than it is read from a hard disk drive, which improves the performance of Internet sites hosted on ZFS-based platforms. Due to the fact that the algorithm compresses data quite well and it does that very quickly, we can generate several backups of all the content kept in the shared website hosting accounts on our servers every day. Both your content and its backups will require less space and since both ZFS and LZ4 work very quickly, the backup generation will not affect the performance of the web servers where your content will be stored.
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's among the best algorithms out there and definitely the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a higher speed than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will boost any kind of Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they will take much less space than standard backups and will be generated much more quickly without loading the servers.
