A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any regular hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using 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 takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used often on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use such a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every website that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all the time and irrespective of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites which load 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.
