A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save data. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more frequently will be held on this type of drives, while all other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers so as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use such a setup to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites do not 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 which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform which employs only SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast since we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and emails. As some people may host websites that could be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system finds all the content which is accessed more regularly and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and decreases the possibility of disk failures.
