A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save data. The SSDs are still relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are much faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any site content which is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their website 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

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your websites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The latter in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, that is one more guarantee for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and excellent performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mails, databases and files. This way, each and every 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 will be able to take advantage of the top-notch performance all of the time and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both decreases the load and guarantees the good performance of all sites that load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
