A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any standard hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot 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 laptop or computer and for saving data that is accessed often on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster 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 Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we create cloud hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will open extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new e-mails with webmail, the content will load immediately. In order to offer even greater speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. Any content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better performance. What we achieve in this way aside from the better speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides extremely fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
