A solid-state drive is incredibly faster than any standard hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is accessed repeatedly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud website hosting packages, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all Internet sites no matter how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created 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 Servers
If you register for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we'll keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and emails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a number of heavy sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't impact the other websites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your site content.
