A solid-state drive is really quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's used often on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to boost the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work only as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use such a setup to ensure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy Internet sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes shall not impact the other sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your content.
