A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data which is used often on hosting servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads much 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 Cloud Web Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all types of sites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
