A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data which is accessed regularly on servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates more traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, which is another warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load quickly as we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some people may host websites that could be more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is accessed more frequently and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
