A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. 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 slower and hotter they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the best solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that is accessed often on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, emails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees lightning-fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable web hosting service.
