A solid-state drive is really faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed often on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates more traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. This subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly because we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host sites that could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system discovers all of the content that is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other websites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the chance of disk failures.
