A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it when compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two types of drives also differ, lots of desktops and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, thus balancing cost and effectiveness. A website hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed repeatedly will be located on this type of a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to offer improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content that you upload to your website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this type of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other 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 good performance all of the time and regardless of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
