A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data which is used often on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can provide excellent performance for all sorts of websites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other 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 regardless of the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
