A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's used frequently on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, which is one more warranty for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every website that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all the time and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the excellent performance of all sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
