A solid-state drive is considerably 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 slower and warmer they become, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data that is accessed regularly on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs in order to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you go for any of our website hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of Internet sites irrespective of how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
