A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs 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 operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data which is used frequently on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting plans, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all sorts of Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every 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 can take advantage of the good performance at all times and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the good performance of all sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
