A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is used repeatedly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we create shared website hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new messages with webmail, the content will load without delay. So as to ensure even better speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All 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 much better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this in addition to the better speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced potential for hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their extended life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
