A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of any app running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD functions with spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a lot of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. A hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed frequently will be located on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the amazing ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee 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 top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every single site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 top performance at all times and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
