Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is named LZ4. It can improve the performance of any website hosted in a cloud hosting account with us because not only does it compress data much better than algorithms employed by various file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies more speedily and on less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover any content that you may have erased by mistake.
