SSD with Data Caching
What 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 (SSD) improves the performance of every app running on it in comparison to a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with a number of interconnected flash memory modules, so there're no physical parts to move. In contrast, a hard disk features spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, meaning the speed of an HDD is fixed. Since the cost of the two types of drives are also different, a lot of PCs and web servers are set up with an SSD for the operating system and various applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, in this way balancing cost and efficiency. A website hosting service provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, which means that files that are used very often will be stored on such a drive for reaching improved loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this type of a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.
