A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any standard hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is used often on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot 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 Shared Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all Internet sites no matter how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly as we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some users may host sites that can be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content that is loaded more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
