A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store data. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Many companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any content that is accessed more frequently will be held on such drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from quick SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can provide fantastic performance for all sorts of Internet sites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user don't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system discovers 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 therefore we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
