A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each app running on it as compared with an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk contains spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the cost of the two types of drives also differ, numerous desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing price and performance. A web hosting provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are used very often will be kept on such a drive for accomplishing improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all sorts of websites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides lightning-fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their long life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
