A solid-state drive is considerably faster 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 information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's accessed regularly on web servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content you upload to your web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of this kind of a configuration to guarantee that traffic-intensive Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.
