A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for storing data that's used repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, any content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this kind of a configuration to guarantee that resource-demanding sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your info.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load quickly since we employ SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host sites which can be more popular than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content that is loaded more often and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the other websites that are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and decreases the potential for disk failures.
