A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save information. The SSDs are still relatively new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are considerably faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on such drives, while all other content will be located on standard HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure lightning-fast loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, any content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. In order to enhance the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work solely as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We employ such a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites do not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees very fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user do not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their extended lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
