A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional 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 slower and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that's used frequently on servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our shared web hosting solutions, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each and every site that you host here will load fast. Just like 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 high performance at all times and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the good performance of all websites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
