A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every application running on it compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive employs multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD functions with spinning disks and each reading or writing process causes the disks to move, meaning the speed of an HDD is restricted. As the prices of the two kinds of drives are also different, lots of PCs and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for data storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. A hosting service provider could also use an SSD for caching purposes, so files which are used on a regular basis will be held on this type of a drive for accomplishing higher loading speeds and for limiting the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.

Thus, all of the content that you upload to your web hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use such a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full 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 life-span will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
