A solid-state drive is much faster than any standard hard-disk drive. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this sort of drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data that's accessed frequently on hosting servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all the content you upload to your website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites don't influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.
