A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any app running on it as compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk contains spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. As the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing price and overall performance. An Internet hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used repeatedly will be kept on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of websites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each Internet 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'll be able to take advantage of the high performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
