A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is accessed regularly on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very fast. To improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ such a setup to make sure that resource-demanding sites will never 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 that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.
