A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save info. The SSDs are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the site content which is accessed more frequently will be stored on such drives, while all other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all of the content which you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very fast. To enhance the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use this type of a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load extremely fast because we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some customers may host Internet sites which could be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system identifies any content which is loaded more regularly and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
