A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data which is accessed frequently on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you get any of our shared web hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide exceptional performance for all types of sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each and every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and ensures the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
