A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any app running on it compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, a large number of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for file storage, in this way balancing price and efficiency. An Internet hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are used on a regular basis will be held on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function solely as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this type of a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every website that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, 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 performance all the time and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the excellent performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
