A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that's accessed frequently on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our cloud hosting packages, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we will save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load amazingly quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes will not affect the other sites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of stability for your website content.
