A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes these drives the best solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data which is used often on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and as a result, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our web hosting plans, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of sites no matter how frequently they are 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 main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
