A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it as compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses many different interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, many PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing price and overall performance. A hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are used on a regular basis will be located on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you'll notice their exceptional 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 Internet hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your websites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates more traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, which is another warranty for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every 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 can take advantage of the top performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
