A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any site content that is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all the other content will be stored on regular HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can provide excellent performance for all types of sites regardless of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers 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 because of this we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable website hosting service.
