A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any standard hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very fast. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of this type of a configuration to ensure that resource-demanding sites will not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since 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 information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes shall not impact the other websites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of stability for your site content.
