A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's used repeatedly on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
