A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is accessed frequently on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes won't influence the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall 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 an extra level of security for your site content.
