A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that's accessed repeatedly on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a website hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is an additional warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
