A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops and servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the site content that is accessed more frequently will be located on such drives, while all other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our hosting plans, you can benefit from the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all load from quick SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. A number of drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can provide exceptional performance for all kinds of sites irrespective of how frequently they are accessed and avoid a situation where some sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the risk of disk failure.
