A solid-state drive is much quicker than any regular hard disk. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is accessed regularly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have 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 notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will improve. This subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each website 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 will be able to take advantage of the good performance all the time and regardless of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
