A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that is accessed frequently on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our website hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
