A solid-state drive is substantially faster than any conventional hard disk. This is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any physically moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes these drives the best solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a PC and for keeping data which is used repeatedly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on hard disk drives, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
Our innovative cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
