A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save info. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops 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. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content which is accessed more frequently will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. This way, any content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs that function exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use this type of a setup to guarantee that traffic-intensive sites do not affect the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and this way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their life-span shall be longer, that is one more warranty for the safety and integrity of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you subscribe for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll save your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all databases and e-mails. This way, your script-driven applications and webmail will load very fast. We employ dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive website content is copied automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a couple of heavy sites which generate plenty of reading and writing processes won't impact the other Internet sites that share the exact same drive. By reduction of the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the main storage drives and reduce the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add another level of protection for your site content.
