A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, in this way balancing price and effectiveness. A hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed frequently will be located on such a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to offer better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ such a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, 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 information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance at all times and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the good performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
