A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's accessed frequently on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our website hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each 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. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all websites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy Internet sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't affect the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your website content.
