A solid-state drive is much quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that's accessed repeatedly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you'll notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, which is an additional warranty for the reliability 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 websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, each site that you host here 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 top-notch performance all the time and irrespective of the nature of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
