A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this sort of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is accessed repeatedly on servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting
Our innovative cloud web hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you get any of our shared website hosting
plans, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide fantastic performance for all types of websites irrespective of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your websites will load amazingly quickly because we employ SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host websites which could be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system identifies all of the content which is accessed more frequently and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites which are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
