A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store data. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all content that is accessed more frequently will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be stored on regular HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers in order to provide outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all of the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We take advantage of such a configuration to ensure that multi-media heavy Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each and every site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the fantastic performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
