A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it as compared to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD uses spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, lots of desktops and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, this way balancing price and effectiveness. A hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are accessed on a regular basis will be held on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our web hosting plans, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all sorts of websites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each website that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other service 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-notch performance at all times and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and provides the optimal performance of all websites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
