Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer are created on a powerful cloud hosting platform which runs on the ZFS file system. ZFS employs a compression algorithm known as LZ4 that exceeds any other algorithm out there in terms of speed and data compression ratio when it comes to processing web content. This is valid especially when data is uncompressed because LZ4 does that faster than it would be to read uncompressed data from a hard disk and for that reason, Internet sites running on a platform where LZ4 is enabled will function at a higher speed. We can benefit from this feature regardless of the fact that it requires quite a considerable amount of CPU processing time because our platform uses many powerful servers working together and we do not make accounts on just a single machine like a lot of companies do. There is another benefit of using LZ4 - considering the fact that it compresses data really well and does that very fast, we can also generate several daily backup copies of all accounts without influencing the performance of the servers and keep them for 30 days. This way, you will always be able to restore any content that you erase by mistake.
