A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save data. The SSDs remain relatively new and more expensive compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they're much faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all content which is accessed more often will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be stored on regular HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their website hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates increased traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will be better. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the potential for a disk failure, which is a further warranty for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we will keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is copied automatically on these drives, so we make sure that several heavy Internet sites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes won't impact the other Internet sites which share the same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and reduce the possibility of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of security for your site content.
