A solid-state drive is really quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data which is used frequently on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our shared hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure excellent performance for all sorts of sites irrespective of how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
