A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed often on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use only SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and emails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes can't impact the other websites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage disks and lower the possibility of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of stability for your site content.
