A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store information. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're considerably faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content which is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on regular HDDs. The reason to use this type of 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 Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers in order to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your hosting account will be reachable very fast. To improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use such a setup to ensure that resource-demanding sites will not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that 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 the drives, ensure their long lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable website hosting service.
