Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a hosting account with us as not only does it compress data more effectively than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backup copies more rapidly and on less disk space, so we can have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover any kind of content that you may have deleted by accident.
