Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any site hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our end since not only does it compress data much better than algorithms employed by other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal 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 backups much more rapidly and on reduced disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore all content that you could have deleted by mistake.
