A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any application running on it as compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD contains spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a lot of personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, this way balancing price and overall performance. A hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are used very often will be located on such a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content you upload to your hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To boost the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each site that you host here will load fast. Just like other 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 performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
