A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is used regularly on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other providers, 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 performance at all times and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the excellent performance of all Internet sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
