A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any standard hard-disk drive. 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 sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data which is used frequently on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to boost the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this type of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load quickly because we use SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some people may host Internet sites which are more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content which is accessed more often and copies 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 sites will not influence the performance of the other websites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the probability of disk failures.
