A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it when compared to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs many different interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk employs spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two types of drives also differ, a lot of computer systems and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing price and effectiveness. A hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are used frequently will be located on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and email messages. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a number of heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other sites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your content.
