A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store information. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are considerably faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any site content which is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The main reason to use this type of 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 countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our modern cloud web hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our website hosting solutions, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all types of websites no matter how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the good performance of all sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
