A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each app running on it as compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD employs a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard-disk drive contains spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two types of drives also differ, many personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and an HDD for file storage, in this way balancing cost and effectiveness. An Internet hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed repeatedly will be stored on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from us, you will notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates increased traffic or causes plenty 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 websites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is another warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

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 that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
