A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save information. The solid-state drives remain fairly new and more pricey when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're considerably faster, so they are frequently employed for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks which limit its speed and can even cause overheating like it could happen with an HDD. Numerous companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all site content which is accessed more often will be held on such drives, while all the other content will be held on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the price and overall performance of their Internet hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.
SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting
Our top-notch cloud Internet hosting platform uses exclusively SSD drives, so in case you get any of our website hosting solutions, you can take advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for any file which is accessed more regularly and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is reduced, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all types of Internet sites irrespective of how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the primary drives and decreases the chance of disk failure.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load quickly as we employ SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and emails. As some customers may host Internet sites that could be more popular than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system finds any content which is loaded more regularly and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not affect the performance of the rest of the sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the probability of disk failures.
