A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any regular hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with 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 a preferred solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for storing data that is used often on hosting servers. A lot of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can provide excellent performance for all kinds of websites no matter how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
