Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any website hosted in a shared web hosting account with us as not only does it compress data much better than algorithms used by alternative 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 for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backups more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any kind of content that you could have removed by accident.
