A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the prices of the two types of drives also differ, a lot of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing cost and effectiveness. An Internet hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files that are used on a regular basis will be located on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to offer improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work solely as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of such a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution because they are created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, each site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all the time and whatever the nature of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all websites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
