A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to store information. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are considerably faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so any content which is accessed more often will be located on such drives, while all other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their website hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

The cloud platform where we create shared hosting accounts uses only SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new email messages through webmail, the content will load right away. To ensure even better speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs that work only as cache. All content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve in this way aside from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus lower possibility of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Provided you want speed and top-notch performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts shall be a very suitable solution because they are created on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for each aspect of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. This way, every single website that you host on our end will load fast. Just like 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 the time and whatever the nature of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the excellent performance of all websites that load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
