SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud platform where we create cloud website hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web applications and static sites will open 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 through webmail, the content will load right away. In order to offer even greater 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 afterwards read from them and not from the main storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for improved efficiency. What we achieve by doing this in addition to the better speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced potential for hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the main drives, that 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 that uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs any longer, so your sites will load extremely fast as we use SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and e-mails. Considering that some users may host websites which can be more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system detects all the content that is accessed more regularly and clones it on these drives so as to load it from them. This setup is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not affect the performance of the rest of the websites which are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also raises the life-span of the main storage SSDs and reduces the potential for disk failures.
