Previously our servers consisted of standard HDD drives, which have a lot of space, however they are not really fast. Over the past weeks we have been upgrading our cPanel nodes to our next generation hybrid setup!
Ok, so what is this next generation setup?
It’s great! It means that we have both HDD and SSD drives! HDD drives serve static files from your home directory, for LiteSpeed (our webserver) for example. We also have SSD drives which serve exclusively MySQL databases and another set of SSD drives that cache your data.
Ok, but what does this mean to me?
SSD drives outperform standard HDD plate drives by far – it means your websites will load a lot faster, the server load will be significally lower due to no I/O bottleneck that HDD drives caused. SSD can serve between 50-150x more MySQL queries than HDD drives.
All of this will impact your websites – they will load faster, a lot faster! SSD drives are smaller than HDD, however our setup is designed so we have enough space for everything!
This sounds great! But won’t this impact on the price of my package?
We have designed our platform so that we can keep the current upkeep cost and increase the overall performance, so you don’t need to worry about your bills – they stay the same even though everything will be faster!
We would like to ensure everyone that everything is proper, we have it all under control and you can enjoy your websites loading faster without any issues.
