A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for storing data which is used regularly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you get any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide perfect performance for all sorts of sites no matter how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every website that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the good performance at all times and regardless of 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 decreases the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
