A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save info. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Most companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more often will be held on such drives, while all the other content will be stored on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

The cloud platform where we make cloud web hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new emails with webmail, the content will load very quickly. To ensure even better speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All the content that generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved efficiency. What we achieve by doing this aside from the better speed is decreased overall load, thus decreased possibility of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that's one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every website that you host with us will load fast. Just like other service providers, 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 the time and whatever the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the good performance of all sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
