A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every application running on it in comparison with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the cost of the two types of drives also differ, a large number of desktops and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing price and efficiency. A hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files that are accessed frequently will be kept on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared website hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide excellent performance for all sorts of sites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to 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 good 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 guarantees the excellent performance of all sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
