A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save information. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), however they are much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. A large number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content that is accessed more frequently will be held on this kind of drives, while all other content will be located on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the cost and overall performance of their website hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll notice their exceptional performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, emails and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the web hosting service. Together with the innovative ZFS file system, this setup will boost the speed of your Internet sites considerably. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. All content that generates more traffic or creates plenty of reading/writing processes is copied on them instantly, so the load on the primary drives will be reduced, thus the overall performance of all websites hosted on our end will improve. The latter subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and decreases the potential for a disk failure, which is a further guarantee for the reliability of all content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives for the storing of files, databases and email messages. Together with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup ensures fast loading speed for each web application hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one user won't affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and clones them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is refreshed dynamically and for that reason we can balance the load on all the drives, guarantee their extended life-span, lower the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide you with a fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
