Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account with us as not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms used by various file systems, but it 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 for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backup copies much quicker and on lower disk space, so we will have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore any kind of content that you may have deleted by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account shall be created on a cloud platform that runs using the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm named LZ4, which is significantly better than all other algorithms when it comes to compression ratio and speed. The gain is visible especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 a lot faster than other algorithms, but it is also faster in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a hard disk. This is why sites running on a platform that employs LZ4 compression perform faster since the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. website content. One more advantage of using LZ4 is that the backup copies of the semi-dedicated accounts that we keep require much less space and they're generated a lot faster, which enables us to store several daily backups of all your files and databases.
