A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and may even cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content that is accessed more frequently will be kept on this type of drives, while all other content will be kept on regular 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 decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to provide outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all of the content you upload to your website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this kind of a setup to ensure that resource-demanding sites will not influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution as they're generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each Internet site that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and provides the good performance of all websites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there'll be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
