A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save information. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the site content which is accessed more often will be kept on such drives, while all the other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud web hosting plans, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can provide perfect performance for all sorts of Internet sites regardless of how frequently 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 decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all the databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that several heavy sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes won't influence the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage disks and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your content.
