A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous desktops and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. A website hosting service provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used frequently will be stored on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all sorts of Internet sites irrespective of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load quickly as we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host sites that can be more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system detects all the content which is accessed more regularly and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the Internet sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
