A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that's used regularly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer outstanding 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 accessible very quickly. To enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We use this type of a setup to ensure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
