A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save data. The SSDs remain relatively new and more expensive compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content which is accessed more often will be kept on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be located on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you purchase any of our shared website hosting packages, you'll take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can ensure perfect performance for all types of websites irrespective of how frequently they're accessed and avoid a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the risk 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 uses only SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and email messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended life-span, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
