Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account shall be created on a cloud platform that is run on the innovative ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm known as LZ4, that's a lot better than alternative algorithms with regard to compression ratio and speed. The gain is significant particularly when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 a lot faster than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a HDD. This is why Internet sites running on a platform that employs LZ4 compression perform better since the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. web content. A further advantage of using LZ4 is that the backup copies of the semi-dedicated accounts that we keep take significantly less space and are generated a lot quicker, which enables us to store a couple of daily backups of your files and databases.
