A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every application running on it compared to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD contains 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 are also different, a lot of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files that are accessed regularly will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.
SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting
Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our website hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all sorts of Internet sites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent 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 primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every 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 good performance at all times and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and provides the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
