A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save data. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are considerably faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content that is accessed more frequently will be held on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared web hosting plans, you will take full advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee fantastic performance for all Internet sites no matter how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs only SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and emails. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files that are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their extended life-span, minimize the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
