Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any website hosted in a shared hosting account with us since not only does it compress info much better than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which 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 allows us to generate backups more rapidly and on less disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore all the content that you could have erased by mistake.
