A solid-state drive is really faster than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data which is accessed regularly on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your web hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load speedily. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a number of heavy websites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't affect the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and decrease the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your site content.
