A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it in comparison with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD works by using spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are also different, a large number of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing cost and performance. An Internet hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are used regularly will be saved on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use this kind of a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, every website that you host here will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the good performance of all sites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
