A solid-state drive is really faster than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's used regularly on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we create cloud website hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web applications and static websites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new emails with webmail, the content will load promptly. To offer even greater speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. Any content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for improved efficiency. What we achieve that way apart from the better speed is lowered overall load, thus reduced possibility of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the main drives, which is one more level of security for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly since we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some users may host sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content that is loaded more frequently and duplicates it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
