A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save information. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Most companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more often will be stored on such drives, while all the other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable very fast. In order to boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides extremely fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files which 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 the drives, ensure their long life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
