A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for storing data which is used frequently on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your Internet sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will improve. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load quickly since we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some customers may host Internet sites that could be more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system discovers any content which is accessed more often and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the possibility of disk failures.
