A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data which is accessed repeatedly on hosting servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and because of this, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less often in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all of the content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your info.
