A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that is accessed frequently on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use this type of a configuration to ensure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not 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 which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes will not influence the other sites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage disks and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of protection for your website content.
