A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that's accessed often on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your Internet sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all of the time and irrespective of the type of your websites. 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 provides the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
