A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it in comparison with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives also differ, lots of computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing price and overall performance. An Internet hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are used repeatedly will be kept on such a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your websites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. This subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to 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 good performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the good performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
