A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that 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 employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data that is used regularly on web 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 SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you get any of our cloud web hosting
packages, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide excellent performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. This way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a few heavy Internet sites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes won't affect the other sites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your site content.
