A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that is accessed repeatedly on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your Internet sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. This in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very fast because we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some people may host sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system finds all the content that is loaded more frequently and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
