A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer 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 substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is used repeatedly on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our shared hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all sites regardless of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all websites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
