A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data which is accessed often on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work solely as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ this kind of a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mail messages. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy websites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't influence the other websites which share the same drive. By reducing the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your site content.
