A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to store info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're much faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home PCs and web servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all content which is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all other content will be located on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

Our modern cloud Internet hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all types of websites regardless of how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not just for the files, but also for all databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy websites that generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes can't affect the other Internet sites which share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and reduce the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your content.
