A solid-state drive is significantly faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution every time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data which is used repeatedly on web servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more frequently used data and because of this, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.
