A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save info. The SSDs are still fairly new and more pricey compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred because it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content that is accessed more frequently will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on regular HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and overall performance of their hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will definitely notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all files, e-mails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the Internet hosting service. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system, this setup will increase the speed of your websites drastically. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. All content which generates increased traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so that the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is a further guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we provide are made on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load very fast as we employ SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host websites that are more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers any content that is accessed more often and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the other sites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the probability of disk failures.
