A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save information. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Most companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content which is accessed more often will be kept on this type of drives, while all the other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will notice their exceptional performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will raise the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All the content that generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted with us will improve. The abovementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, that is another guarantee for the integrity of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and emails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration provides fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the websites of one user will not affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and duplicates them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their long life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable web hosting service.
