A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk uses spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, many desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, this way balancing price and overall performance. A web hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are used frequently will be kept on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some users may host Internet sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds any content which is accessed more often and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
