A solid-state drive is much faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data that's used regularly on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs 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 reduced because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our shared web hosting packages, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very fast because we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some customers may host websites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system finds all the 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 guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
