A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any application running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are 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, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, numerous PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, in this way balancing cost and overall performance. An Internet hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are used regularly will be held on such a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We take advantage of such a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take 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 life-span will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files.

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 good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your sites. 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 guarantees the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
