A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save info. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A lot of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content that is accessed more often will be kept on this type of drives, while all other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their website hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work solely as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this type of a configuration to make sure that resource-demanding sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your websites will load amazingly quickly because we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. As some users may host sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is accessed more regularly and copies it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the other websites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the chance of disk failures.
