A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each application running on it when compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD works by using spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the cost of the two types of drives also differ, a large number of PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, in this way balancing cost and performance. A website hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are used regularly will be kept on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all types of websites regardless of how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises 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 outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every single 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'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and whatever the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the fantastic performance of all websites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
