A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that is used often on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting packages, you can 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 fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide fantastic performance for all kinds of Internet sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a couple of heavy websites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes won't affect the other websites that share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of stability for your site content.
