A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save information. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're much faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content that is accessed more frequently will be located on this kind of drives, while all other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to offer improved loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your shared web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We employ such a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides lightning-fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so 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 drives, warrant their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
