A solid-state drive is really quicker than any standard hard disk. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data which is accessed frequently on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, emails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, that is another guarantee for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load quickly as we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some people may host Internet sites that are more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system detects all the content which is accessed more regularly and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the websites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the possibility of disk failures.
