A solid-state drive is much quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that is accessed often on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our hosting solutions, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all sites no matter how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a fast and reliable web hosting service.
