A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any application running on it in comparison to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing price and overall performance. A web hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed regularly will be kept on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your shared web hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other 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 decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and email messages. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes can't affect the other sites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of protection for your content.
