A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save information. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so any site content that is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've removed 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 you upload to your cloud hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this type of a configuration to ensure that resource-demanding sites don't affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your info.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every single Internet site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all of the time and regardless of the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the optimal performance of all websites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
