A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data that's accessed repeatedly on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content that you upload to your web hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this type of a setup to make sure that multi-media heavy sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every website that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the optimal performance of all sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
