A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data which is accessed frequently on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mail messages. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy websites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't affect the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and decrease the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of stability for your site content.
