A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each application running on it as compared to a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD works by using spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the prices of the two types of drives are also different, a large number of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed regularly will be held on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional warranty for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each and every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance at all times and regardless of the type 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 reduces the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
