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

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, any content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very fast. In order to improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of such a setup to make sure that traffic-intensive Internet sites will never affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan shall be longer, that is one more guarantee for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every single site that you host on our end 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 performance all of the time and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and provides the excellent performance of all websites which load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
