A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, whereas an SDD takes advantage of 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 kind of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for storing data which is used regularly on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our cloud website hosting plans, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can provide perfect performance for all Internet sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides very fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
