A solid-state drive is really faster than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that's used frequently on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we create cloud hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will open extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new e-mail messages with webmail, the content will load quickly. So as to ensure even higher speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. All the content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve in this way aside from the improved speed is reduced overall load, thus reduced potential for hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of protection for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and e-mails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of stability for your website content.
