A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed repeatedly on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your website hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of this kind of a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their long lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable website hosting service.
