A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each app running on it when compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, which means that the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, numerous PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, this way balancing cost and overall performance. A web hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed repeatedly will be stored on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, which is a further warranty for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very fast since we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some people may host sites that can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content which is accessed more regularly and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the other sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
