A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that's accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
