A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data which is used frequently 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 several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we create cloud hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so no matter if you open a page or check for new email messages with webmail, the content will load quickly. To ensure even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All the content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve this way aside from the improved speed is reduced overall load, thus lower chance of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the main 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

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast because we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some customers may host sites that can be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system identifies any content that is accessed more often and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the probability of disk failures.
