A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save information. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're considerably faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any content that is accessed more often will be kept on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be held on standard HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the amazing ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your Internet sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates more traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the primary drives and reduces the chance of a disk failure, that is another warranty for the reliability of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want speed and outstanding performance for your sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every site that you host here will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and regardless of the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both lowers the load and provides the fantastic performance of all sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there will be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
