A solid-state drive is really faster than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that's accessed regularly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, 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 often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, that is a further guarantee for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.
