A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of each app running on it compared to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses a variety of interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. Because the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous desktops and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard disk for data storage, thus balancing price and performance. An Internet hosting service provider can 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 Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We take advantage of this type of a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your data.
