A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it as compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a variety of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the cost of the two types of drives are different as well, lots of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are used regularly will be saved on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content which you upload to your web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this kind of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each and every website that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
