A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers in order to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of this type of a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their long lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable web hosting service.
