A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of any app running on it as compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, numerous PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing price and efficiency. A website hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are used frequently will be saved on this type of a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this 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 shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very quickly because we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some customers may host Internet sites that can be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content that is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the probability of disk failures.
