A solid-state drive (SSD) boosts the performance of any application running on it when compared with a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses a number of interconnected flash memory units, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard-disk drive functions with spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is fixed. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, lots of desktops and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard disk for data storage, this way balancing cost and overall performance. An Internet hosting provider may also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files which are used very often will be located on this type of a drive for accomplishing better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your sites in a hosting account from our company, you'll notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates more traffic or creates lots 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 sites 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 an additional warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all websites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
