A solid-state drive is really quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is accessed frequently on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web applications and static websites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new email messages through webmail, the content will load without delay. To ensure even greater speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. All the content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved performance. What we achieve by doing this apart from the better speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased chance of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
