A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save data. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are considerably faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Many companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any content which is accessed more often will be kept on such drives, while all other content will be kept on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our cloud hosting packages, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all websites irrespective of how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll store 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 amazingly quickly. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is cloned automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes won't influence the other sites which share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the main storage disks and decrease the chance of a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of security for your site content.
