A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every application running on it when compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk works by using spinning disks and each 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 also differ, numerous computer systems and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, this way balancing price and efficiency. A website hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are used on a regular basis will be held on this type of a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load very fast because we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some customers may host sites that could be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system detects all the content which is loaded more often and duplicates it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the websites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the chance of disk failures.
