A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data which is used regularly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load very fast since we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some people may host Internet sites that can be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the probability of disk failures.
