A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives the best solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is used often on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the 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 site content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes can't influence the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and lower the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your content.
