A solid-state drive is significantly quicker than any standard hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and warmer they get, while an SDD uses modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives a preferred solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is used regularly on servers. A large number of providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives in order to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting
Our modern cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our web hosting packages, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure excellent performance for all kinds of Internet sites regardless of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
