A solid-state drive is really faster than any standard hard disk. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is used frequently on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your web hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this kind of a configuration to ensure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable web hosting service.
