A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save information. The SSDs remain relatively new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both PCs and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and could cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the 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 reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their website hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Web Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every aspect of our services - files, e-mails and databases. That way, all of the content you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be accessible very fast. To enhance the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use a number of SSDs which function only as cache - our system stores routinely accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We take advantage of such a setup to guarantee that multi-media heavy sites will never influence the performance of the other sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. What's more, since the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan shall be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.

This way, each and every site that you host on our end will load fast. Similar to other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the good performance all of the time and whatever the type of your Internet sites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and any frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and ensures the optimal performance of all Internet sites that load from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there will be significantly less reading and writing processes on them.
