A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules to save data. The SSDs remain relatively new and more expensive when compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they are faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and servers. An SSD is preferred because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and may cause overheating as it may happen with an HDD. A lot of companies use SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content that is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be kept on regular HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the cost and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

We use only SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on our production servers in order to ensure outstanding loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be reachable very quickly. To boost the overall performance of the Internet sites hosted on our end even more, we also use multiple SSDs which function solely as cache - our system saves frequently accessed content on them and updates it instantly.

What's more, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span shall be longer, which is one more warranty for the security and integrity of your information.
