A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it in comparison to an ordinary 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 contrast, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, many personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, in this way balancing cost and overall performance. A website hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used on a regular basis will be kept on this type of a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content that you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable very fast. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We employ such a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a couple of heavy websites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes can't impact the other Internet sites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of stability for your content.
