A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that's accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads faster 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

The cloud platform where we create shared hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new e-mail messages using webmail, the content will load without delay. To ensure even higher speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. Any content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better performance. What we achieve this way in addition to the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the fantastic performance of all sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
