A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it in comparison with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk contains spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two types of drives are also different, numerous computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, in this way balancing price and overall performance. A hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are accessed on a regular basis will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content you upload to your hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To enhance the overall 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 stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable web hosting service.
