A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this type of a configuration to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each site that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance all the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
