A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and may even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Most companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content which is accessed more often will be stored on such drives, while all other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your websites substantially. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content that generates more traffic or creates lots of reading/writing processes is copied on them promptly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted with us will be better. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, which is another warranty for the reliability of any content which you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your websites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the advanced ZFS file system that we use, this configuration ensures lightning-fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the sites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use multiple SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all drives, warrant their long lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable website hosting service.
