A solid-state drive is much faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that's used repeatedly on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Together with the advanced ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates more traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
