A solid-state drive is much faster than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data that is accessed regularly on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this type of a setup to make sure that resource-demanding Internet sites don't affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they are made on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, every site that you host here 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 high performance all the time and whatever the type of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
