A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to store data. The SSDs remain fairly new and more expensive compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are considerably faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content that is accessed more frequently will be located on such drives, while all the other content will be located on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
Our innovative cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all kinds of websites irrespective of how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you need speed and high-end performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they are created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, each Internet site 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 all of the time and irrespective of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the fantastic performance of all Internet sites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased because there'll be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
