A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is accessed frequently on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to ensure better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of this kind of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your data.
