A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are considerably faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and web hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it does not have spinning disks which limit its speed and can cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more frequently will be kept on this kind of drives, while all other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform employs exclusively SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and emails will all load from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching SSDs. A number of drives are used by our system for every file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can guarantee excellent performance for all sites regardless of how many times they're accessed and prevent 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 primary drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.
