A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of any app running on it in comparison to an ordinary hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with many different interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to rotate, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the prices of the two kinds of drives are different as well, numerous personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and various applications, and a hard disk for file storage, this way balancing price and performance. A hosting provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files that are used repeatedly will be held on such a drive for achieving higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard drives.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ such a setup to ensure that multi-media heavy sites will never affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your info.
