A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data which is accessed regularly on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We take advantage of this type of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and emails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't impact the other sites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage disks and lower the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your site content.
