A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is accessed regularly on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to make sure that multi-media heavy Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very fast as we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. As some users may host sites which can be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers all of the content that is loaded more often and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the rest of the websites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the chance of disk failures.
