A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is used repeatedly on web servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads faster 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

If you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is another warranty for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each and every website that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the high performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
