Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created on a cloud platform which is run on the innovative ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm known as LZ4, that is far better than all the other algorithms regarding compression ratio and speed. The gain is visible particularly when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 quicker than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a HDD. This is the reason why websites running on a platform that uses LZ4 compression perform better because the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. site content. Another advantage of using LZ4 is that the backups of the semi-dedicated accounts which we keep require significantly less space and they're generated faster, which allows us to store a number of daily backups of your files and databases.
