A solid-state drive is much faster than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data which is used repeatedly on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account with us, you'll notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance at all times and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
