A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that's accessed frequently on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you get any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide exceptional performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees very fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
