A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives the right solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that is used repeatedly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster 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

If you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates increased traffic or causes lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, that is a further guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a couple of heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes shall not affect the other websites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage disks and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of protection for your website content.
