A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every application running on it as compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk functions with spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, which means that the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, a large number of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing price and overall performance. A web hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed repeatedly will be held on this type of a drive for achieving improved loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you get any of our cloud web hosting packages, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all kinds of websites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their extended life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
