A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save data. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any content that is accessed more frequently will be held on this type of drives, while all the other content will be held on regular HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

We use only SSDs on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, all the content that you upload to your hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that function solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We take advantage of this type of a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and high-end performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution since they are created on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each Internet site 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 will be able to take advantage of the high performance at all times and irrespective of the nature of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all sites which load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
