A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites don't affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load amazingly quickly as we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some users may host Internet sites which are more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content which is accessed more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
