A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is accessed often on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content that you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use such a setup to make sure that multi-media heavy sites don't affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides lightning-fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous 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 because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their extended life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
