A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every application running on it in comparison to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are also different, many computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing cost and effectiveness. An Internet hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are accessed very often will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet 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 life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the good performance of all websites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
