A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, emails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. That way, every single website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance at all times and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all websites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
