A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any conventional hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our hosting plans, you can take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide excellent performance for all sorts of sites no matter how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
