A solid-state drive is really quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive employs rotating disks, that 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 operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives the right solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is used often on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use this kind of a configuration to make sure that resource-demanding sites do not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other 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 life-span shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.
