A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save data. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content which is accessed more often will be located on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

The cloud platform where we create cloud hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless if you open a page or check for new messages using webmail, the content will load quickly. To offer even better speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this aside from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus lower possibility of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of protection for any data that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for every part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, each Internet site that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both reduces the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
