A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any standard hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our website hosting plans, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load very quickly because we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and emails. As some people may host Internet sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content which is accessed more frequently and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other websites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the probability of disk failures.
