A solid-state drive is really quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data which is used repeatedly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this type of a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a number of heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not affect the other sites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your website content.
