A solid-state drive is really faster than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data which is used often on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting plans, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can provide exceptional performance for all sorts of websites no matter how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which 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 for that reason we can balance the load on all drives, ensure their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable website hosting service.
