A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to offer outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function solely as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this type of a setup to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load extremely fast since we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some users may host sites which are more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system discovers all the content that is accessed more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
