A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are much faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Numerous companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on such drives, while all the other content will be held on conventional 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 lower the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you get any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure excellent performance for all sorts of sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides lightning-fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
