A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each app running on it compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two types of drives are also different, numerous personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing price and performance. A web hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed frequently will be stored on this type of a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of such a setup to make sure that multi-media loaded sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every single Internet 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'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and ensures the good performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
