A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of every application running on it as compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that an SSD functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk employs spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Because the cost of the two types of drives also differ, numerous PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and an HDD for data storage, this way balancing price and overall performance. A hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used on a regular basis will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you will definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all drives, ensure their long lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a fast and reliable website hosting service.
