A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each application running on it compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a large number of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing cost and performance. A web hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed regularly will be located on such a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how often they're 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 main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they are created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other service 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 good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
