A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data that is accessed often on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you load a page or check for new emails with webmail, the content will load right away. In order to offer even higher speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All of the content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this except for the better speed is lowered overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, which is one more level of protection for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every single Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and irrespective of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and provides the fantastic performance of all Internet sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
