A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save info. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content that is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our modern cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our cloud hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all types of Internet sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance all the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
