A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that's used regularly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes can't impact the other sites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and decrease the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your content.
