A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load amazingly quickly as we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host Internet sites which can be more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system detects all the content which is accessed more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the probability of disk failures.
