A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account with us, you'll notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, emails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is one more guarantee for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the good performance all the time and regardless of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
