A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store data. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content that is accessed more often will be kept on this kind of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the potential for a disk failure, which is one more guarantee for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you need speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each part of the service - emails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the high performance all of the time and irrespective of the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and provides the good performance of all websites that load directly from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
