A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to save information. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more expensive compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are often employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that 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 which is accessed more frequently will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a web hosting account from our company, you will notice their excellent performance. The reason is that our cloud platform uses only SSD drives for all of the files, email addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. In addition to the advanced ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use numerous SSDs for caching purposes only. All of the content which generates increased traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them automatically, so that the load on the main drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will be better. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the primary drives and lessens the possibility of a disk failure, that is a further guarantee for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and e-mails. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for any web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the sites of one customer don't affect the ones of another one, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and because of this we can balance the load on all drives, guarantee their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a quick and reliable web hosting service.
