A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the right solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data which is accessed often on web servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads quicker 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 Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ such a configuration to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable website hosting service.
