A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save data. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Most companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content that is accessed more often will be located on this kind of drives, while all other content will be stored on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their website hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our innovative cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all sorts of Internet sites irrespective of how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all the time and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all websites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
