A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any conventional hard disk. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives the best solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data that's accessed regularly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

The cloud platform where we create shared hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new e-mails using webmail, the content will load instantly. In order to ensure even higher speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All of the content that generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved performance. What we achieve that way apart from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced possibility of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of protection for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, 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 configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a quick and reliable web hosting service.
