A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save info. The SSDs are still relatively new and more pricey when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content which is accessed more often will be stored on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.
SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting
We use exclusively SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers so as to ensure better loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all of the content that you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to boost the performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs that work exclusively as cache - our system saves regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We use this kind of a configuration to make sure that multi-media loaded Internet sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. In addition, given that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, that is one more warranty for the security and stability of your information.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want speed and excellent performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated hosting accounts will be a very suitable solution since they are generated on a cloud platform that employs SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, each site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the top performance at all times and whatever the type of your sites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and provides the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased considering that there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
