A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that is used often on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your shared website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ such a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes won't impact the other Internet sites that share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your content.
