A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any app running on it as compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, numerous PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing price and performance. An Internet hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed on a regular basis will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our cloud web hosting packages, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide excellent performance for all sorts of sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary 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 Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Together with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
