A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any normal hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed regularly on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use such a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all drives, ensure their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
