A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is accessed repeatedly on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We use this type of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't influence the other sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of protection for your site content.
