A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each application running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing cost and overall performance. A website hosting service provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that 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 disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our web hosting plans, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all sorts of websites regardless of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mail messages. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't impact the other sites which share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your site content.
