A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD works by using spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing cost and overall performance. A website hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are used regularly will be saved on such a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To boost the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this kind of a configuration to guarantee that resource-demanding sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the fantastic performance of all sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
