Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is called LZ4. It can improve the performance of any website hosted in a cloud web hosting account with us because not only does it compress data more effectively than algorithms used by various other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backups quicker and on less disk space, so we can have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always recover any content that you may have erased by accident.
