A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any regular hard disk. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that is used repeatedly on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads much 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 Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is another guarantee for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
