A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data that's accessed often on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure excellent performance for all sorts of websites no matter how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast since we use SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and emails. As some customers may host Internet sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system discovers all the content which is accessed more often and clones 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 sites will not influence the performance of the other websites which are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the probability of disk failures.
