A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the best solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that's used regularly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
Our modern cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure excellent performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy websites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes shall not affect the other Internet sites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of stability for your website content.
