Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud hosting account with us as not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform due to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backups more speedily and on less disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore the content that you may have erased by accident.
