A solid-state drive is much quicker than any normal hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's accessed regularly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you go for any of our shared website hosting plans, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all types of Internet sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all of the time and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the good performance of all Internet sites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
