A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data that's accessed repeatedly on web 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 often used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs 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 disks, so your files, databases and emails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all websites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load amazingly quickly because we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some customers may host sites which can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system discovers all of the content that is accessed 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 Internet sites which are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the chance of disk failures.
