A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any regular hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that's accessed regularly on hosting servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content which you upload to your website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function solely as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use this kind of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded sites don't influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
