A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any standard hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed often on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we make shared website hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new email messages with webmail, the content will load promptly. So as to offer even higher speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All the content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve in this way apart from the improved speed is reduced overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and provides the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
