A solid-state drive is much faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that's accessed often on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content you upload to your web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use such a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly since we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some users may host Internet sites that are more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers any content which is accessed more regularly and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other websites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
