A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save information. The SSDs are still relatively new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are considerably faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content which is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be stored on regular HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers as to offer better loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ this type of a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system discovers files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable website hosting service.
