A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data 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 a lot higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is used frequently on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

The cloud platform where we create shared web hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will load extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new messages with webmail, the content will load quickly. In order to offer even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. Any content which generates lots 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 improved efficiency. What we achieve in this way except for the better speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased chance of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of protection for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that 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 therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
