A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to store info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content that is accessed more often will be held on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure excellent performance for all sites irrespective of how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and high-end performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every single site that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance at all times and regardless of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and provides the optimal performance of all sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
