A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD employs rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data which is accessed often on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your shared hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ this kind of a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your info.
