A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any standard hard disk. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that's accessed frequently on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you get any of our cloud website hosting packages, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure excellent performance for all types of sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises 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 offer are created on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very fast since we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some people may host websites which can be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system finds all of the content that is loaded more frequently and copies it on these drives so as 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 other Internet sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the chance of disk failures.
