A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any application running on it as compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk uses spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two types of drives also differ, a large number of desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing price and effectiveness. A web hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are accessed very often will be kept on this type of a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use only SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this kind of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites don't influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, each and every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and ensures the excellent performance of all sites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
