A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more frequently will be held on such drives, while all other content will be held on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting plans, you can take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can provide exceptional performance for all sites irrespective of how frequently they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution as they are made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and regardless of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and ensures the fantastic performance of all websites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
