A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content which is accessed more often will be stored on such drives, while all other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost 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 Shared Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so if you obtain any of our shared web hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly 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 primary drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all types of Internet sites no matter how frequently 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 increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register 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. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a number of heavy Internet sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't impact the other sites which share the very same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and lower the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your website content.
