A solid-state drive is much faster than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's accessed often on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

The cloud platform where we make hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new emails through webmail, the content will load right away. So as to offer even better speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. All content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve in this way apart from the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus lower probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, which is one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each website that you host with us will load fast. Just like 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 irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and ensures the excellent performance of all websites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
