A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it in comparison with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, 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, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. As the cost of the two types of drives also differ, many PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing price and overall performance. A hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are used very often will be located on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible very fast. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function solely as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, each website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the high performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
