A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for storing data which is accessed often on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives 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 because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our company, you will definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all the files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your websites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees extremely fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
