SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
The cloud platform where we make shared hosting accounts uses solely SSD drives, so your web apps and static websites will load very fast. The SSDs are used for files, emails and databases, so regardless of whether you load a page or check for new emails through webmail, the content will load right away. So as to ensure even greater speeds, we also use numerous dedicated SSDs which function only as cache. Any content which generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the main storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for better efficiency. What we achieve by doing this apart from the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus lower probability of hardware failures, and longer lifespan of the primary drives, which is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are made on a cloud platform which employs exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load very quickly as we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and emails. As some users may host sites which are more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system discovers any content which is loaded more frequently and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the other websites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and reduces the possibility of disk failures.
