A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any normal hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's used regularly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work solely as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this kind of a configuration to guarantee that multi-media heavy sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some customers may host sites that are more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is loaded more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
