A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store info. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more often will be located on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on regular HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so if you acquire any of our hosting plans, you'll benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.
