A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that is accessed regularly on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a hosting account with us, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is another guarantee 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 excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every single Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 the time and irrespective of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the fantastic performance of all sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
