A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to save info. The SSDs remain relatively new and more expensive when compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are frequently used for Operating Systems and apps on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content which is accessed more frequently will be located on this kind of drives, while all other content will be stored on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their web hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs resulting from countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

That way, all of the content that you upload to your hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the websites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it instantly.
