A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it in comparison with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD uses a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two types of drives also differ, lots of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing price and performance. A website hosting provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are used very often will be stored on such a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

If you host your websites in a website hosting account with us, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. In addition to the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is another guarantee for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the good performance of all sites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
