A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are considerably faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and applications on both home PCs and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our shared hosting plans, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all types of websites no matter how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their long lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
