A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the right solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is used regularly on hosting servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud hosting packages, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all kinds of sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable website hosting service.
