A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that is accessed regularly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the amazing ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they are created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
