A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it in comparison with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a large number of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed on a regular basis will be saved on such a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared website hosting account from our company, you will notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates more traffic or creates plenty 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 Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of all 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 sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every single 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 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 frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the good performance of all sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
