A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store information. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're much faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on this type of drives, while all the other content will be held on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you buy any of our hosting packages, you can benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed in order to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can ensure exceptional performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Together with the cutting-edge ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system discovers files that are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and consequently we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a fast and reliable web hosting service.
