A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every application running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are also different, many PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing cost and performance. A web hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed repeatedly will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide fantastic performance for all kinds of websites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very fast because we employ SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and emails. As some users may host websites that could be more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system finds all the content which is accessed more often and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
