A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save data. The solid-state drives remain relatively new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Many companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the website content which is accessed more frequently will be kept on this type of drives, while all other content will be located on conventional HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

Our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you go for any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and email messages will all load from fast SSDs. For even better performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to make sure that all traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can provide perfect performance for all kinds of sites no matter how many times they are accessed and prevent a situation where some sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the chance of disk failure.
