A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The SSDs are still relatively new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and could cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content which is accessed more frequently will be held on such drives, while all the other content will be kept on standard HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you get any of our cloud hosting plans, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure excellent performance for all kinds of Internet sites no matter how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one customer do not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
