A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each application running on it compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two types of drives are also different, numerous personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, this way balancing cost and effectiveness. A web hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are used frequently will be stored on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you get any of our cloud website hosting plans, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, each site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance at all times and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all websites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
