A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any regular hard disk. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that's used regularly on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud website hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide excellent performance for all kinds of websites no matter how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their long lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
