A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it compared to an ordinary 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 drive employs spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, many desktops and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing price and effectiveness. A website hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are used regularly will be stored on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates more traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, which is an additional warranty for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each site that you host on our end 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 high performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the optimal performance of all websites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
