A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is accessed frequently on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your sites in a hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is an additional warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not influence the other sites which share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of stability for your website content.
