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 sites will load very quickly. The SSDs are used for files, e-mails and databases, so no matter if you load a page or check for new e-mail messages with webmail, the content will load quickly. To ensure even better speeds, we also use a group of dedicated SSDs which work only as cache. Any content that generates lots of traffic is copied on them automatically and is later on read from them and not from the primary storage drives. Needless to say, that content is replaced dynamically for improved performance. What we achieve by doing this except for the improved speed is decreased overall load, thus lower probability of hardware failures, and extended lifespan of the primary drives, that is one more level of protection for any information that you upload to your account.
SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which uses exclusively SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your Internet sites will load extremely fast as we use SSDs for every aspect of the service - files, databases and email addresses. As some people may host Internet sites which could be more frequently visited than others, we also use many drives for caching. Our system identifies all the content which is accessed more often and duplicates it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we make sure that several reading/writing intensive websites will not influence the performance of the other Internet sites that are stored on the very same main drive. Using caching drives also increases the life-span of the main storage SSDs and lowers the chance of disk failures.
