A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two types of drives also differ, numerous desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for data storage, thus balancing price and efficiency. A web hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed on a regular basis will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this type of a configuration to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every 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'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and whatever the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the good performance of all websites that load straight 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.
