A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each application running on it compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD functions with spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a lot of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing price and performance. A hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are used very often will be located on such a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ such a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all the time and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all websites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
