A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to store info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content which is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their website hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. That way, all of the content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to boost the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this kind of a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and stability of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer will not 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 that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all drives, ensure their extended lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
