A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each app running on it in comparison with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, thus balancing cost and effectiveness. A hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are used regularly will be stored 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 Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use this kind of a configuration to ensure that multi-media heavy sites do not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes shall not influence the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of stability for your content.
