A solid-state drive is noticeably quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data which is accessed often on hosting servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of sites no matter how often they are accessed and avoid 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 risk of disk failure.
