A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that's accessed often on servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of this type of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like 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 irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all websites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
