Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is called LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any website hosted in a shared website hosting account on our end since not only does it compress data much better than algorithms used by other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies much more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover any content that you may have deleted by accident.
