A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the cost of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing cost and overall performance. A hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are accessed frequently will be saved on this type of a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our website hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each site that you host with us 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 high performance all the time and whatever the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the optimal performance of all sites which load straight 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.
