Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm which we use on the cloud hosting platform where your new hosting account will be created is called LZ4 and it's used by the leading-edge ZFS file system which powers the system. The algorithm is superior to the ones other file systems use since its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data a lot quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens more quickly than information can be read from a hard drive. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of every website hosted on a server which uses the algorithm. We take full advantage of LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to generate multiple daily backups of the entire content of all accounts and store them for 30 days. Not only do the backups take less space, but their generation does not slow the servers down like it often happens with other file systems.
