A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data that's accessed frequently on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this type of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
