A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it in comparison to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a large number of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, in this way balancing cost and performance. An Internet hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are accessed regularly will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very fast. To improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function solely as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We use this kind of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution because they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every single 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 good performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
