A solid-state drive is really quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is used frequently on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared website hosting packages, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly because we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and emails. As some users may host websites that could be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies any content which is accessed more often 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 influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
