A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is used regularly on servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud website hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web applications and static websites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so no matter if you open a page or check for new email messages with webmail, the content will load instantly. To offer even higher speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All the content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for better performance. What we achieve that way apart from the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus reduced probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of protection for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and e-mails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes shall not affect the other websites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your content.
