A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store data. The SSDs are still relatively new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content which is accessed more often will be held on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on standard HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

The cloud platform where we create website hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will load extremely fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mail addresses and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new e-mails using webmail, the content will load promptly. So as to offer even greater speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All the content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve this way aside from the improved speed is lowered overall load, thus lower chance of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the main drives, that is one more level of security for any info that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform which employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single Internet site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other service providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance at all times and whatever the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and ensures the good performance of all websites which load from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
