A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you can take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all sorts of sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user will not 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 copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a quick and reliable web hosting service.
