A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk uses spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, lots of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing cost and overall performance. A hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files that are used on a regular basis will be saved on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function solely as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the good performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all websites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
