A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it in comparison with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a lot of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing cost and effectiveness. A hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed frequently will be located on this type of a drive for achieving higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all types of websites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every single Internet site that you host on our end 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 good performance at all times and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the good performance of all websites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
