A solid-state drive is noticeably faster than any standard hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is used often on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
