A solid-state drive is really faster than any normal 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 become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives the right solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data which is used frequently on hosting servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of that, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your sites in a hosting account from us, you will notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, that is another warranty for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.
