A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each application running on it compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, this way balancing cost and overall performance. An Internet hosting service provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are used very often will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive 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 which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and emails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't impact the other sites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your site content.
