Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can improve the performance of any website hosted in a shared hosting account on our end since not only does it compress data more effectively than algorithms used by various file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backup copies a lot faster and on reduced disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we could always recover any kind of content that you may have deleted by mistake.
