A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk uses spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, numerous PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing price and performance. A hosting provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed repeatedly will be kept on this type of a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates more traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, that is another warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance all the time and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
