A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's accessed frequently on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is an additional guarantee for the reliability of any 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 that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees lightning-fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies 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 the drives, warrant their long lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable web hosting service.
