A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store data. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A large number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more frequently will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and overall 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 Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content which you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work solely as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We employ this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other 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 good performance at all times and whatever the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
