A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it as compared with an ordinary 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, an HDD uses spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, which means that the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two kinds of drives are also different, lots of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. A web hosting service provider can also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are accessed regularly will be held on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your websites in a hosting account from our company, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, that is another 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 provide are made on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load quickly as we employ SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some customers may host websites that could be more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system finds any content which is loaded 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 sites will not affect the performance of the other sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
