A solid-state drive is much faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is accessed regularly on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content that you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ such a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all the time and irrespective of the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
