A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it when compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a lot of computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, in this way balancing price and effectiveness. A web hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are used very often will be located on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated 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 types of Internet sites no matter how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated 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

Provided you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every website that you host here will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
