A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's used often on servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, 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 as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our shared hosting plans, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all kinds of websites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load extremely fast since we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some people may host Internet sites that are more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content that is accessed more often and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
