Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can improve the performance of any website hosted in a hosting account on our end because not only does it compress data more efficiently than algorithms used by various file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backups much quicker and on less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any content that you may have deleted by accident.
