A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules in order to store data. The SSDs remain fairly new and more pricey than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they are considerably faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and applications on both PCs and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks which restrict its speed and could cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A large number of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so any content which is accessed more frequently will be held on this type of drives, while all the other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Web Hosting

Our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs only SSD drives, so in case you obtain any of our web hosting solutions, you will benefit from the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard drives, so your files, databases and email messages will all open from extremely fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we also use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for each file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. This way, the load on the main drives is reduced, so we can ensure perfect performance for all Internet sites irrespective of how many times they're accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by too many reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the possibility of disk failure.

The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all of the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both minimizes the load and guarantees the optimal performance of all sites that load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter is also increased considering that there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
