A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store info. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're considerably faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content that is accessed more often will be located on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be held on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.
SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
Our top-notch cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our shared hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching SSDs. A group of drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all types of websites no matter how often they're accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a really suitable solution because they are generated on a cloud platform that uses SSDs for each part of the service - emails, databases and files. This way, every single Internet site that you host here will load fast. Similar to other service 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-notch performance all of the time and whatever the type of your websites. 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 guarantees the good performance of all Internet sites that load straight from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased because there will be considerably less reading and writing processes on them.
