A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, whereas an SDD uses modules of flash memory, so there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution every time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for storing data that is used regularly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting
Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our cloud web hosting packages, you will benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that 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. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how often 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 raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
