A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each application running on it as compared to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD works by using spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing cost and overall performance. A web hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed repeatedly will be held on such a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all websites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service 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 high performance all of the time 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 on them, which both decreases the load and ensures the optimal performance of all sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
