A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, at the same time an SDD uses modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes this sort of drives the right solution if speed is needed. That's why SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that's used repeatedly on servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard disk drives, but they use one or more SSDs to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Hosting
Our innovative cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of sites regardless of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some 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 reduces the risk of disk failure.
