A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that 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 parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's accessed often on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our cloud web hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load very fast since we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some users may host Internet sites which are more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system detects all the content that is loaded more frequently and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other sites which are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the probability of disk failures.
