A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data which is used frequently on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of 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 need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so no matter if you open a page or check for new e-mail messages with webmail, the content will load quickly. So as to ensure even better speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. Any content that generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve in this way apart from the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus decreased possibility of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the main drives, that is one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and emails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy websites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not influence the other websites that share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your website content.
