A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save information. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and may cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content which is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all the other content will be stored on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our hosting plans, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all types of sites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very 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 here will load fast. Just like other service providers, 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 the time and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
