A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any application running on it when compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, numerous personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, thus balancing price and effectiveness. A website hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed repeatedly will be kept on such a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, any content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of such a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded sites do not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each website that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance at all times and regardless of the type of your websites. 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 that load straight 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.
