A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on web servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we create website hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will open extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new e-mails using webmail, the content will load quickly. So as to offer even greater speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All the content that generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve by doing this aside from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus lower chance of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs 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 ensures extremely fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates 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 the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
