Data Compression in Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a web hosting account with us since not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which 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 enables us to create backups more quickly and on less disk space, so we can have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore all the content that you may have deleted by mistake.
