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 classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Most companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all content that is accessed more frequently will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be located on standard HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is lowered, so we can ensure excellent performance for all kinds of sites no matter how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the leading-edge ZFS file system that we use, this setup guarantees lightning-fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user will not affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all the drives, warrant their long lifespan, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable web hosting service.
