Data Compression in Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can improve the performance of any site hosted in a web hosting account with us since not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot 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 make backup copies much more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. This way, we can always restore all content that you may have erased by accident.
