A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data which is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the amazing ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates more traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, which is another warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load very fast since we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and emails. As some customers may host websites which can be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies any content that is accessed more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
