A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any standard hard disk. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is used often on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting
Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our shared website hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can provide perfect performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy websites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't impact the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the primary storage drives and reduce the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your site content.
