A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that is used frequently on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our web hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can provide fantastic performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, each Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
