A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that is accessed regularly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives 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 lowered as their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this kind of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load extremely fast since we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. As some customers may host Internet sites that could be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content that is accessed more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other websites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the probability of disk failures.
