A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's accessed often on servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load extremely fast since we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some customers may host websites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content that is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the websites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
