A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're much faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on conventional 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 numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our shared website hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all sorts of websites irrespective of how often they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, each and every website that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all the time and regardless of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and guarantees the good performance of all websites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
