A solid-state drive is really faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that's used often on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our shared web hosting packages, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all types of websites regardless of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load very quickly since we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some customers may host websites that are more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system discovers all of the content which is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
