A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and may even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content which is accessed more often will be located on this kind of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and emails will all load from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can provide perfect performance for all kinds of Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy websites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes shall not influence the other Internet sites which share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your website content.
