A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it as compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the cost of the two types of drives are different as well, lots of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing price and efficiency. A hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed very often will be saved on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use such a setup to make sure that multi-media heavy Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't influence the other Internet sites that share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your site content.
