A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that 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 much faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on such drives, while all the other content will be located on standard HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the innovative ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the integrity of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one user don't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that 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 drives, guarantee their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable web hosting service.
