A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every application running on it as compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the prices of the two types of drives are also different, a large number of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing cost and overall performance. A web hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are used repeatedly will be located on this type of a drive for accomplishing higher 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 cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use such a configuration to ensure that multi-media heavy sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and ensures the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
