A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every app running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, many PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing price and effectiveness. A web hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are accessed regularly will be kept on such a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility 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 which uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load amazingly quickly since we employ SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some people may host websites which can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is loaded more frequently and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
