A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred 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 repeatedly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you'll notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your Internet sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. This subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, which is one more warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides extremely fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system finds 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 as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
