A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard disk. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data which is accessed frequently on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

The cloud platform where we make shared hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so no matter if you open a page or check for new messages using webmail, the content will load instantly. In order to offer even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. All the content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve by doing this except for the improved speed is reduced overall load, thus lower chance of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides lightning-fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple 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, guarantee their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
