A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save data. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more frequently will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

The cloud platform where we make shared hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new messages using webmail, the content will load right away. In order to ensure even better speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All of the content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this apart from the better speed is lowered overall load, thus lower potential for hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, that is one more level of security for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. In addition to the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees extremely fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their long life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a super fast and reliable web hosting service.
