A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it in comparison to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the cost of the two types of drives also differ, lots of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for data storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. A hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files that are accessed frequently will be located on such a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded sites will never influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load extremely fast because we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some customers may host sites which could be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content which is loaded more often and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
