A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content which is accessed more often will be located on such drives, while all other content will be held on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their fantastic performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will increase the speed of your Internet sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, that is a further warranty for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast as we use SSDs for each aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host Internet sites that are more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system detects all of the content that is loaded more often and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
