A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any normal hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for keeping data which is accessed regularly on hosting servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased since their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

In case you host your sites in a hosting account with us, you'll notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.
