A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that's used often on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very quickly since we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some customers may host websites which could be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content which is accessed more often and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the chance of disk failures.
