A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each application running on it in comparison to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the cost of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing price and performance. A hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are used regularly will be kept on such a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, 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 Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every single Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 regardless of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and ensures the optimal performance of all sites that load directly 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.
