A solid-state drive is much quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD works with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a PC and for storing data which is accessed frequently on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to offer improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a configuration to guarantee that resource-demanding sites will never influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.
