Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a shared website hosting account with us as not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms used by other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD 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. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backups more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we will have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover all of the content that you could have erased by accident.
