A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data that is accessed repeatedly on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Along with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes shall not affect the other sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your website content.
