A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The SSDs are still relatively new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A lot of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content which is accessed more often will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure perfect performance for all Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy Internet sites that generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't influence the other Internet sites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and lower the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your content.
