A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is accessed regularly on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of Internet sites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution because they're created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance at all times and regardless of the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
