Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any website hosted in a hosting account with us since not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms used by various other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform owing to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backup copies more rapidly and on reduced disk space, so we can 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 recover all of the content that you may have removed by mistake.
