A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any standard hard disk. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed repeatedly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load quickly as we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. As some users may host sites that can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system detects any content that is accessed more frequently and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other websites which are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the chance of disk failures.
