A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's accessed frequently on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content you upload to your shared website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of such a configuration to make sure that resource-demanding sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy websites that generate plenty of reading and writing processes will not influence the other sites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of protection for your site content.
