Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm that we employ on the cloud internet hosting platform where your new cloud hosting account will be created is named LZ4 and it's used by the cutting-edge ZFS file system which powers the platform. The algorithm is better than the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data significantly faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens more quickly than data can be read from a hdd. Because of this, LZ4 improves the performance of every website stored on a server which uses this particular algorithm. We use LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to generate several daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for thirty days. Not only do our backups take less space, but in addition their generation won't slow the servers down like it can often happen with some other file systems.
