A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives the best solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data which is accessed often on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced 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 employs only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure excellent performance for all types of Internet sites irrespective of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance at all times and regardless of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
