A solid-state drive is much faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data that is accessed often on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to ensure better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very quickly because we use SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some people may host websites that could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content which is accessed more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the rest of the Internet sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
