A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed frequently on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our cloud hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail 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 any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some users may host websites which are more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system discovers all of the content which is loaded more often and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the websites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the possibility of disk failures.
