A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the cost of the two types of drives also differ, numerous PCs 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 efficiency. A hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed frequently will be located on this type of a drive for achieving higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your shared website hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use this type of a configuration to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host on our end 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 high performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the good performance of all Internet sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
