A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data that's used regularly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, which is one more warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load very quickly because we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mails. As some people may host sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system detects any content that is accessed more often and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the probability of disk failures.
