A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of any application running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD features spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the cost of the two types of drives are also different, numerous personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for file storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting service provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed frequently will be stored on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide excellent performance for all sorts of sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides lightning-fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
