A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save information. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are considerably faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content that is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on our production servers in order to offer better loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all the content that you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To improve the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and updates it without delay. We employ this kind of a configuration to make sure that traffic-intensive sites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span will be longer, that's one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they're generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, each website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you will be able to take advantage of the high performance at all times and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
