A solid-state drive is really quicker than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is used regularly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will open extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so no matter if you open a page or check for new e-mail messages through webmail, the content will load promptly. So as to offer even better speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. All content which generates a lot 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 much better performance. What we achieve this way except for the better speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced potential for hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they are made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every site that you host here will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
