A solid-state drive is much quicker than any normal 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 sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives the right solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data which is used often on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we make website hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web applications and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new messages using webmail, the content will load very quickly. In order to offer even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. Any content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve this way except for the better speed is lowered overall load, thus decreased possibility of hardware failures, and longer 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 obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their long lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
