A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each app running on it compared to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the cost of the two types of drives are different as well, a lot of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. A website hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are used frequently will be located on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable web hosting service.
