A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it in comparison with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are also different, a large number of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, in this way balancing price and performance. A web hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed repeatedly will be kept on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to offer improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to improve the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ such a configuration to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top performance all of the time and irrespective of the nature 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 decreases the load and guarantees the good performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
