A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any regular hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is accessed frequently on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and consequently, 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 Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your hosting account will be reachable very fast. To improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this type of a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides extremely fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that 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, guarantee their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
