A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save data. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and may even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you get any of our hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide fantastic performance for all types of websites no matter how many times they are accessed and avoid 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 decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and clones 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, guarantee their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
