A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it compared with a common hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive works by using many different interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk works by using spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives also differ, many desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing cost and overall performance. An Internet hosting service provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, which means that files that are accessed on a regular basis will be saved on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates more traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, which is one more guarantee for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Together with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures very fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so 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, warrant their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a quick and reliable web hosting service.
