A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives the best solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's accessed regularly on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this kind of a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Provided you want speed and outstanding performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every website that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other 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 top performance at all times and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
