A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store information. The SSDs are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are much faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and applications on both home PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that limit its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A lot of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all content which is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The reason to use this type of a configuration 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

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you'll definitely notice their excellent performance. This is because our cloud platform uses solely SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we don't use HDDs for any part of the hosting service. Along with the amazing ZFS file system, this configuration will raise the speed of your Internet sites significantly. For load-balancing, we also use a number of SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content which generates more traffic or creates a lot of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them promptly, so that the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all Internet sites hosted on our end will improve. The abovementioned in turn prolongs the life of the main drives and lessens the chance of a disk failure, which is an additional warranty for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides fast loading speed for any web app hosted on our end. To ensure that the Internet sites of one user won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and as a result we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their long life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, offer you a fast and reliable website hosting service.
