A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save data. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the site content that is accessed more frequently will be stored on this kind 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 hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you will notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Along with the cutting-edge ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your sites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content which generates more traffic or causes a lot of reading/writing processes is copied on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the possibility of a disk failure, which is an additional guarantee for the integrity of all content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are generated on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load amazingly quickly since we employ SSDs for all aspects of the service - files, databases and emails. As some users may host sites that can be more frequently visited than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers all the content that is loaded more regularly and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
