A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any regular hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data that's accessed frequently on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads 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

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to provide better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this type of a configuration to make sure that multi-media heavy Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other sites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your site content.
