A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save information. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all content which is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our website hosting solutions, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of sites no matter how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and regardless of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the good performance of all websites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
