A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred 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 which is accessed often on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs in order 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 have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to provide better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this kind of a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites will never influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy websites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other sites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your website content.
