SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
The cloud platform where we make shared hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new emails using webmail, the content will load very quickly. To ensure even greater speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All of the content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this aside from the better speed is reduced overall load, thus decreased probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the main drives, that's one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you sign up for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, we'll keep your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all of the databases and emails. That way, your script-driven apps and webmail will load extremely fast. We work with dedicated SSDs for caching as well. Traffic-intensive website content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we make certain that a number of heavy sites that generate a lot of reading and writing processes shall not impact the other sites that share the same drive. By reduction of the overall system load we also raise the lifespan of the primary storage disks and decrease the chance of a disk failure, so by using SSD drives for caching purposes, we add one more level of protection for your website content.
