A solid-state drive is much quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data which is used regularly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you go for any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all types of websites regardless of how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some 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 risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
