A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it as compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives also differ, many computer systems and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing cost and effectiveness. A website hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed on a regular basis will be located on this type of a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load very quickly because we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. As some users may host websites which could be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system discovers all the content which is loaded more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the Internet sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
