A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution in case speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data that is used frequently on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all Internet sites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
