A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to store info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're much faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and can even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any website content that is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be located on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and 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 Shared Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses solely SSD drives, so in case you acquire any of our shared hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and emails will all load from high-speed SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can provide fantastic performance for all sorts of Internet sites irrespective of how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are created on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load amazingly quickly because we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and emails. As some users may host Internet sites which could be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system detects any content which is loaded more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not affect the performance of the other websites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the chance of disk failures.
