Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can improve the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared website hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backups more speedily and on reduced disk space, so we will have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any kind of content that you could have erased by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer are created on a powerful cloud hosting platform which runs on the ZFS file system. ZFS works with a compression algorithm named LZ4 that surpasses any other algorithm you can find in terms of speed and compression ratio when it comes to processing web content. This is valid especially when data is uncompressed as LZ4 does that more rapidly than it would be to read uncompressed data from a hard disk and as a result, sites running on a platform where LZ4 is present will function at a higher speed. We're able to take advantage of the feature regardless of the fact that it needs quite a lot of CPU processing time because our platform uses a lot of powerful servers working together and we don't create accounts on just a single machine like a lot of companies do. There's another reward of using LZ4 - considering the fact that it compresses data really well and does that extremely fast, we can also make multiple daily backups of all accounts without influencing the performance of the servers and keep them for a whole month. This way, you'll always be able to recover any content that you erase by mistake.
