SSD with Data Caching
What exactly is a solid-state drive (SSD)? What is SSD caching and how does it work? Discover the advantages of hosting your Internet sites on an SSD-powered server.
A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that is accessed frequently on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting
We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content which you upload to your shared website hosting
account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this kind of a setup to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server
accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every single Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the optimal performance of all sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
