A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all content that is accessed more frequently will be kept on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our modern cloud web hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud website hosting plans, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all Internet sites no matter how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they're made on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each and every website that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the good performance all of the time and whatever the nature of your sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the good performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
