A solid-state drive is really faster than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed frequently on hosting servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our web hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very fast since we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some customers may host websites which can be more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies all of the content which is loaded more often and clones 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 sites will not affect the performance of the other websites which are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
