A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it as compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, numerous personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. A web hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed regularly will be held on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content that you upload to your shared website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded sites don't influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet 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 reduced, their life-span will be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and irrespective of 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 decreases the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
