A solid-state drive is substantially quicker than any standard hard-disk drive. This is because an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they get, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes this type of drives a preferred solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often employed for the Operating System on a personal computer and for storing data that is accessed repeatedly on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several 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 often to read and write.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and emails. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy websites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't influence the other websites which share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your website content.
