A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is used often on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To improve the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We use this type of a configuration to guarantee that resource-demanding sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance all the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the excellent performance of all sites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
