A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to store info. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they're faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content which is accessed more frequently will be kept on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so if you go for any of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all kinds of websites irrespective of how frequently they are accessed and prevent 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 reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mail messages. Thus, your script-driven applications and webmail will load extremely fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive site content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that a few heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not affect the other Internet sites which share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and decrease the potential for a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your site content.
