Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The ZFS file system that operates on our cloud Internet hosting platform uses a compression algorithm named LZ4. The aforementioned is a lot faster and better than every other algorithm you'll find, especially for compressing and uncompressing non-binary data i.e. internet content. LZ4 even uncompresses data faster than it is read from a hard disk, which improves the performance of websites hosted on ZFS-based platforms. Because the algorithm compresses data very well and it does that very fast, we can generate several backup copies of all the content kept in the shared web hosting accounts on our servers daily. Both your content and its backups will require reduced space and since both ZFS and LZ4 work very fast, the backup generation will not influence the performance of the web servers where your content will be stored.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's among the best algorithms out there and definitely the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will quicken every website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that is provided by the numerous clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and keep them for one month as they will take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
