A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it as compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, so the speed of an HDD is limited. As the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, a lot of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, this way balancing cost and effectiveness. A hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files that are used on a regular basis will be located on such a drive for achieving better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of this type of a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every website that you host here will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance all the time and whatever the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
