SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting
The cloud platform where we make shared hosting accounts uses exclusively SSD drives, so your web applications and static Internet sites will open very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so regardless of whether you open a page or check for new e-mails using webmail, the content will load immediately. So as to offer even greater speeds, we also use multiple dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. All the content which generates a lot of traffic is copied on them automatically and is afterwards read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Of course, that content is replaced dynamically for much better performance. What we achieve in this way in addition to the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus reduced probability of hardware failures, and prolonged lifespan of the main drives, which is one more level of protection 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 exclusively SSD drives. We do not use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast since we use SSDs for each part of the service - files, databases and e-mail addresses. Considering that some people may host websites which could be more popular than others, we also use numerous drives for caching. Our system finds any content that is accessed more frequently and duplicates it on these drives so as to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we guarantee that several reading/writing intensive Internet sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the sites which are stored on the same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the possibility of disk failures.
