A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every app running on it compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD works by using a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, an HDD functions with spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the cost of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, this way balancing price and efficiency. An Internet hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, so files which are accessed regularly will be held on such a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared hosting account with us, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates more traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so the load on the primary 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 decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that 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 extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
