A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any conventional hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for saving data that is used often on web servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud web hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static Internet sites will open very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you load a page or check for new e-mails using webmail, the content will load without delay. So as to offer even higher speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All the content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved efficiency. What we achieve this way except for the better speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased possibility of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.
