A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any conventional hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads quicker 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 Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function solely as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use such a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures very fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
