A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store information. The SSDs are still relatively new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more often will be held on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use only SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to offer lightning-fast loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work only as cache - our system saves often accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We use this kind of a setup to make sure that multi-media heavy Internet sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and e-mails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a couple of heavy Internet sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't influence the other websites that share the very same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the probability of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an extra level of stability for your content.
