A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any regular hard disk. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that is accessed regularly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our web hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all sorts of sites no matter how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees extremely fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable website hosting service.
