A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that's used often on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't influence the other websites that share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your site content.
