A solid-state drive is really faster than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and warmer they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives the best solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for keeping data that's accessed often on web servers. Numerous service 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 so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so if you go for any of our cloud website hosting plans, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all sites no matter how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
