A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of each application running on it compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive uses multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk uses 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 also different, a large number of personal computers and web servers are set up with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing price and performance. An Internet hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are accessed very often will be kept on such a drive for accomplishing improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard disks.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a web hosting account with us, you will notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively 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. Together with the advanced ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
