A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store information. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content that is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a hosting account with our company, you will notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and decreases the chance of a disk failure, which is a further warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host with us will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will 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 any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the good performance of all websites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
