A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it as compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two types of drives are different as well, many personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, this way balancing price and overall performance. A website hosting service provider may also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are accessed frequently will be kept on this type of a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our cloud hosting solutions, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide excellent performance for all types of websites regardless of how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Together with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides extremely fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable web hosting service.
