A solid-state drive is really quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data which is used often on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads much 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 Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all types of sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mail messages. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a number of heavy sites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes shall not impact the other sites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your website content.
