A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it in comparison to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with many different interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk uses spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, a lot of computer systems and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, thus balancing cost and effectiveness. A web hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used on a regular basis will be kept on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To improve the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this kind of a configuration to ensure that multi-media heavy sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your info.

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 which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees lightning-fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that 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 for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their long life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable web hosting service.
