Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any website hosted in a cloud web hosting account with us as not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which 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 because 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 lower disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always restore all of the content that you could have removed by mistake.
