A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store information. The SSDs are still fairly new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're much faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content that is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you get any of our web hosting plans, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all types of websites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to 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 top performance all of 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 decreases the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
