A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting
Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our shared web hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
