Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any website hosted in a cloud web hosting account with us as not only does it compress data significantly better than algorithms employed by various file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backup copies faster and on less disk space, so we will have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. That way, we can always restore any kind of content that you may have deleted by accident.
