A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use this type of a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very fast since we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some users may host sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system detects all the content which is accessed more often and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the websites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
