A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content which is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their website hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our cloud hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all kinds of Internet sites regardless of how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user don't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all drives, ensure their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
