A solid-state drive is really faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed frequently on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly as we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some users may host Internet sites that can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content that is accessed more often and copies 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 websites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
