Creating and maintaining a successful blog, an e-commerce website, or a specialized web application requires a large number of input/output operations to the database. SSD shared hosting is the solution that will deliver maximum productivity and speed to your project. The combination of traditional shared hosting with SSD disks increases the quality of the service and better performance of your site online.
In the following lines, you are about to learn more about the SSD disks and how they will improve the performance of your online business.
What is SSD?
SSD disks are the driving force of all online services. This generation of disks with no moving mechanical components, remove the delay in reading and improve the overall speed. SSDs give the users immediate access to data, excellent productivity and high-speed processing of queries. This is the reason why our data centers are equipped with SSD disks, and your websites are sure to be hosted on them. But what exactly makes SSD special?
How do SSD disks improve your Shared hosting?
The presence of SSD fully optimizes and improves the functioning of your shared hosting by helping you achieve a high speed of loading and opening of the website. This is a crucial factor for the Google Rank performance of your site and its overall representation.
Nowadays, a high portion of the websites on the Internet are developed with the help of open-source web applications like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. When a user enters a dynamic website based on for example WordPress, the entry generates a query to the database and simultaneously accesses the contents of the web page at the same time.
With the conventional HDD disks, this process is much slower. If you are planning on starting an e-commerce website then you know that the loading speed is of utmost essence – slow loading reflects negatively on sales - your customers are disappointed and might exit the site without completing the purchase.
Advantages of SSD disks
- extremely high productivity – information is processed 5 times faster with SSD than with HDD
- high-speed data transfer when accessing and serving dynamic content from the database
- a large volume of Input/output operations per second (IOPS) – with SSD 20 times more IOPS’ are being processed that the amount with HDD. This serves as a major advantage when system shares are processing a large number of operations and transactions
- reliability – the possibility of an eventual error when reading from the disk is significantly lower
What function does SSD perform?
Even though SSD disks have many good qualities, they cannot replace HDD disks entirely. SSDs are the perfect option when we talk about storing dynamic information, databases and partitions that require intensive reading and writing (IOPS), processing SQL operations and caching.
Organizing information in this way greatly accelerates client applications without the need for additional optimization on your behalf.
By using SSDs, your site spends fewer CPU minutes, thus freeing resources for additional operations. SSD drives are characterized by exceptionally good performance, this kind of data storage is ideal for busy web applications, intensive work with database servers, indexing, logging, and large file processing, as well as overloaded backup repositories and high-consumption.
