A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard disk. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that is accessed often on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to offer outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores often accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use such a setup to make sure that resource-demanding Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mail messages. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a couple of heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes won't affect the other websites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage disks and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your website content.
