A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any app running on it compared with a common 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 comparison, an HDD employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, numerous personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing price and effectiveness. A website hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are accessed repeatedly will be held on this type of a drive for accomplishing improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our cloud hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host on our end 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 all of the time and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the good performance of all websites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
