A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to save information. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and could cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Most companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content which is accessed more frequently will be located on this type of drives, while all other content will be held on standard HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our innovative cloud website hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so if you buy any of our cloud hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file that's accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all kinds of websites regardless of how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
