A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, which 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, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is used repeatedly on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you will notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, that is another warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very fast as we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some customers may host Internet sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system discovers all the content which is accessed more regularly and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the potential for disk failures.
