A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each application running on it in comparison with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD uses spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is limited. As the cost of the two types of drives are different as well, lots of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, in this way balancing cost and effectiveness. A web hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed frequently will be held on this type of a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use only SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to offer better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a setup to ensure that traffic-intensive sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every Internet site that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all the time and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
