Data Compression in Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any site hosted in a website hosting account on our end as not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms used by various other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to generate backups much more quickly and on less disk space, so we will have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. That way, we can always restore any kind of content that you could have removed by accident.
