A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every application running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing cost and performance. A hosting provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed repeatedly will be located on such a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our modern cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud web hosting plans, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and regardless of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
