A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's used frequently on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to provide lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of such a configuration to ensure that resource-demanding sites will never influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host websites which could be more popular than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system finds any content that is loaded more frequently and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the rest of the sites which are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
