A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that's accessed frequently on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

The cloud platform where we make hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will load extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new email messages using webmail, the content will load immediately. To offer even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better performance. What we achieve that way in addition to the better speed is reduced overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very quickly because we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some people may host websites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system identifies all of the content that is accessed more regularly and clones 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 sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
