A solid-state drive is really faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data which is used repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you get any of our shared hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees extremely fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
