SSD with Data Caching in Shared Web Hosting
The cloud platform where we create shared web hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web apps and static sites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, email addresses and databases, so regardless if you load a page or check for new e-mail messages using webmail, the content will load without delay. So as to offer even better speeds, we also use a number of dedicated SSDs that function only as cache. All of the content that generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve this way aside from the better speed is decreased overall load, thus lower probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the main drives, which is one more level of security for any data that you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created on a cloud platform which uses solely SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your Internet sites will load amazingly quickly as we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some customers may host Internet sites that can be more frequently visited than others, we also use a number of drives for caching. Our system detects any content that is accessed more often and clones it on these drives in order to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the websites that are stored on the same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the probability of disk failures.
