A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any standard hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data that is accessed often on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to provide better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content which you upload to your website hosting account will be reachable very fast. To improve the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We take advantage of this type of a setup to guarantee that resource-demanding Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the good performance at all times and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and ensures the excellent performance of all Internet sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
