A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it when compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Since the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a large number of PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing price and performance. A web hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are accessed on a regular basis will be kept on such a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our shared hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all types of websites irrespective of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy sites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other 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 an additional level of protection for your website content.
