A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives the best solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that's used repeatedly on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

The cloud platform where we create hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web applications and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new messages with webmail, the content will load right away. To offer even greater speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. Any content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve this way apart from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased chance of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of security for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every website that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and provides the fantastic performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
