A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any standard hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

The cloud platform where we create web hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new e-mails with webmail, the content will load very quickly. In order to ensure even better speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All of the content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve that way except for the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus lower potential for hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the main drives, which is one more level of protection for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, each and every Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all of the time and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the good performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
