A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is accessed often on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two 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 this, the data loads much 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 Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you'll notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load quickly because we use SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some users may host Internet sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies all of the content which is loaded more frequently and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
