A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's accessed regularly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be accessible very fast. To boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ such a configuration to guarantee that resource-demanding sites don't affect 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. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load amazingly quickly because we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host websites that could be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system identifies all of the content which is accessed more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup 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 which are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
