A solid-state drive is much quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that's used often on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and as a result, 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 Hosting

The cloud platform where we make hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will open extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new email messages through webmail, the content will load quickly. So as to offer even better speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this except for the improved speed is reduced overall load, thus reduced possibility of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and provides the fantastic performance of all websites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
