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), but they're faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content that is accessed more often will be located on this kind of drives, while all other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our advanced cloud hosting platform and we have removed all HDDs on the production servers in order to provide improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To improve the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system saves routinely accessed content on them and updates it instantly. We use such a configuration to ensure that multi-media loaded sites will not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and outstanding performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution since they're created on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for all aspects of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host here will load fast. Just like other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all of the time and irrespective of the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased as there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
