A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any conventional hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is used often on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we make website hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new emails using webmail, the content will load right away. So as to offer even better speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All the content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve this way apart from the better speed is reduced overall load, thus reduced probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and whatever the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the fantastic performance of all websites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
