A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each application running on it as compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the cost of the two types of drives are different as well, a large number of personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed very often will be saved on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our website hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all sites no matter how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single site that you host here 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 all the time and regardless of the nature of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
