Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can boost the performance of any website hosted in a cloud hosting account with us because 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 hard disk 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 backups quicker and on less disk space, so we can have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. This way, we can always recover any kind of content that you may have removed by mistake.
