A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that is used regularly on hosting servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all kinds of websites irrespective of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides lightning-fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
