A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any normal hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is used repeatedly on hosting servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use a couple of SSDs 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 because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you buy any of our cloud hosting packages, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.
