A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is used regularly on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

The cloud platform where we create hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will load extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new e-mails through webmail, the content will load instantly. To ensure even greater speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. Any content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved efficiency. What we achieve in this way aside from the better speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced possibility of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer won't affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
