A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more frequently will be kept on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can provide excellent performance for all Internet sites regardless of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees lightning-fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and clones 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 drives, ensure their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
