A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any regular hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data which is used frequently on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. This in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their long lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
