A solid-state drive is much faster than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution if speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data which is used often on hosting servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to ensure improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We use such a setup to ensure that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user 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 clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all of the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
