Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server plans that we provide are created on a powerful cloud platform that runs on the ZFS file system. ZFS uses a compression algorithm named LZ4 that exceeds any other algorithm available on the market in terms of speed and data compression ratio when it comes to processing web content. This is valid particularly when data is uncompressed because LZ4 does that more rapidly than it would be to read uncompressed data from a hard disk drive and owing to this, websites running on a platform where LZ4 is enabled will function at a higher speed. We can benefit from the feature although it needs quite a lot of CPU processing time as our platform uses a large number of powerful servers working together and we don't create accounts on just a single machine like a lot of companies do. There's an additional reward of using LZ4 - considering that it compresses data very well and does that extremely fast, we can also make several daily backups of all accounts without affecting the performance of the servers and keep them for a whole month. In this way, you will always be able to recover any content that you erase by accident.
