A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Most companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more frequently will be held on such drives, while all the other content will be stored on conventional HDDs. The reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you get any of our hosting plans, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites 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 possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single site that you host here will load fast. Just like 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 high performance all the time and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all websites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
