A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data which is used frequently on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two 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 due to this fact, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of sites regardless of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
