A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it when compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, numerous personal computers 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 cost and overall performance. An Internet hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are used frequently will be kept on this type of a drive for achieving higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account from us, you will notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, which is one more guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they are created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service 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 high performance at all times and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
