A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of any app running on it as compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk functions with spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, numerous computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing price and efficiency. A hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed frequently will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable very fast. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of this type of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, 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 whatever the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all websites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
