A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it in comparison with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, numerous personal computers and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are used frequently will be stored on such a drive for reaching higher 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 hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers in order to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this kind of a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy Internet sites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes shall not impact the other websites which share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your website content.
