A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save data. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on the production servers as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which function exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly. We employ such a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, which is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your data.

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 which employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures lightning-fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their long lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
