A solid-state drive is really quicker than any normal hard disk. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data that's accessed often on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your websites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is one more warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides extremely fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous 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 updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their extended life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable web hosting service.
