A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save information. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content that is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our shared web hosting packages, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for every 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. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy Internet sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes can't impact the other sites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also increase the lifespan of the main storage drives and lower the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of security for your content.
