Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The ZFS file system which is run on our cloud hosting platform uses a compression algorithm called LZ4. The aforementioned is significantly faster and better than every other algorithm you will find, especially for compressing and uncompressing non-binary data i.e. web content. LZ4 even uncompresses data faster than it is read from a hard disk drive, which improves the performance of sites hosted on ZFS-based platforms. Due to the fact that the algorithm compresses data quite well and it does that very quickly, we're able to generate several backup copies of all the content kept in the cloud web hosting accounts on our servers every day. Both your content and its backups will need reduced space and since both ZFS and LZ4 work extremely fast, the backup generation will not change the performance of the 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 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 will uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate any kind of website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, which is provided by the numerous clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they'll take much less space than typical backups and will be generated much quicker without loading the servers.
