A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save information. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so any site content which is accessed more frequently will be held on this kind of drives, while all other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall 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 Shared Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our top-notch cloud hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to provide outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your shared website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. To boost the performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs that work solely as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We employ this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites don't influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts shall be a really suitable solution because they're created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mails, databases and files. That way, every single website that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to 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-notch performance at all times and regardless of the nature of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both lowers the load and provides the good performance of all Internet sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
