A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are also different, a large number of personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, this way balancing cost and efficiency. A website hosting provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed regularly will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your sites in a hosting account with our company, you'll notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. This subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is another warranty for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load quickly since we employ SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host sites which can be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system finds all the content that is accessed more frequently and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the other sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the possibility of disk failures.
