A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to store information. The SSDs remain fairly new and more expensive compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're much faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more often will be kept on this kind of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud hosting packages, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all kinds of sites no matter how many times 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 increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution since they're generated on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your 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 ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load straight 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.
