A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that an HDD works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives the best solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our web hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide exceptional performance for all kinds of Internet sites regardless of how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy Internet sites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes shall not affect the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the probability of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your site content.
