A solid-state drive is much faster than any normal hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed regularly on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all types of websites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mail messages. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a couple of heavy websites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't impact the other sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your site content.
