Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is one of the best algorithms out there and definitely the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data a lot faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will boost any website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that is provided by the large number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for a month as they'll take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be generated much more quickly without loading the servers.
