A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store information. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are considerably faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all content that is accessed more often will be stored on such drives, while all the other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud hosting packages, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide exceptional performance for all sorts of Internet sites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host with us will load fast. Just like other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the high performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and provides the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
