A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time 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 this type of drives an ideal solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is used often on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content that you upload to your shared website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to ensure that multi-media heavy Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mail messages. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy Internet sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes shall not influence the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of protection for your site content.
