A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each app running on it as compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD works by using spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a lot of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, thus balancing price and overall performance. An Internet hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed frequently will be located 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 Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function solely as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this kind of a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and email messages. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy websites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes shall not influence the other sites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your content.
