A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they're much faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and hosting servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may even cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all content which is accessed more frequently will be held on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the price and performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers so as to offer improved loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, all the content you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible amazingly quickly. To boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We take advantage of this kind of a setup to ensure that multi-media heavy Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and this way all other Internet sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, we will hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mails. That way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load speedily. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy Internet sites which generate a lot of reading and writing processes can't affect the other websites that share the same drive. By reducing the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of stability for your content.
