A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save data. The SSDs are still relatively new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content which is accessed more frequently will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the price and overall 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 Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates more traffic or creates plenty 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 websites hosted with us will be better. This subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is an additional warranty for the integrity of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll store your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very quickly. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive site content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy sites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes won't affect the other websites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and lower the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of stability for your content.
