A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save information. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content which is accessed more frequently will be kept on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so if you go for any of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll benefit from 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 greater performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of sites no matter how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides very fast loading speed for each web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system finds 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 for that reason we can balance the load on all of the drives, warrant their long lifespan, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a quick and reliable Internet hosting service.
