A solid-state drive is really quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is used regularly on web servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or causes lots 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 Internet sites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the chance of 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

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites 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 provides very fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one customer will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable web hosting service.
