Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud web hosting account with us since not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard drive 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. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups much more rapidly and on reduced disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any kind of content that you may have erased by mistake.
