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 among 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 can uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will accelerate every site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that is provided by the great number of clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for a month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
