A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any app running on it when compared with a common 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, an HDD works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, lots of PCs and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, this way balancing cost and performance. A hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are used on a regular basis will be located on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use this kind of a configuration to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous 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 refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable web hosting service.
