A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using spinning 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 works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives the best solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data which is accessed frequently on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which work solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ such a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites will never affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a quick and reliable website hosting service.
