A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules so as to store info. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they are much faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and applications on both personal computers and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and could cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. Numerous companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content that is accessed more often will be held on this type of drives, while all the other content will be kept on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their web hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

We no longer use hard disk drives, so your files, databases and e-mail messages will all open from fast SSDs. For even improved performance, we use caching solid-state drives. A group of drives are used by our system for each file that's accessed often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all of the traffic-intensive files load from them. In this way, the load on the primary drives is decreased, so we can guarantee perfect performance for all types of sites regardless of how many times they're accessed and prevent a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also raises the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.
