A solid-state drive is much faster than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is used regularly on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to offer outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this kind of a configuration to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 top-notch performance at all times and regardless of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
