A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any standard hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that's accessed repeatedly on servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your Internet sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures very 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, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
