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

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our top-notch cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting packages, you will benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from high-speed SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of sites irrespective of how often they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that several heavy sites which generate a large amount of reading and writing processes shall not influence the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your content.
