A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our shared hosting plans, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of websites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
