A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed often on hosting 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 one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared web hosting plans, you can take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and emails will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all types of sites no matter how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system detects files that 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 consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
