A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data which is used regularly on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting
The cloud platform where we create shared web hosting
accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new e-mails with webmail, the content will load very quickly. In order to offer even higher speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All of the content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve this way apart from the better speed is lowered overall load, thus reduced potential for hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, which is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting
accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the fantastic performance of all websites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
