A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the cost of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, this way balancing cost and effectiveness. A web hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are used repeatedly will be located on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you buy any of our website hosting packages, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes will not influence the other websites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your site content.
