A solid-state drive is really faster than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive 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 operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are substantially higher, which makes these drives the best solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for saving data that's accessed regularly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use one or more SSDs so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will be better. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.
