A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it when compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two types of drives are also different, many desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. A web hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files that are used repeatedly will be located on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our hosting plans, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all sorts of websites no matter how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy Internet sites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not influence the other websites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of stability for your content.
