A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that's accessed regularly on web servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates more traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, which is another warranty for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some users may host websites which can be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content which is loaded more often and duplicates it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the other websites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
