A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that is accessed repeatedly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so if you get any of our cloud hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of Internet sites irrespective of how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created 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 Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load speedily. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a number of heavy sites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes will not influence the other Internet sites which share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of stability for your site content.
