A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that is used often on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our hosting packages, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide exceptional performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load extremely fast as we employ SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. Considering that some users may host Internet sites which can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is accessed more regularly and duplicates it on these drives so as 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 affect the performance of the other 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 probability of disk failures.
