Speed is very important when running websites and apps. The systems that store and access the data files for a website have a vital role in its performance. Hard disk drives were the most reliable devices for storing data until solid-state drives were developed. Because of their superiority, all of our servers use SSD rather than HDD.
In a solid-state drive, there are no moving parts and the data is stored on flash memory, making it much more efficient at processing data.
Because SSD is able to access data so much faster than HDD, it's also far more efficient with input/output performance.
Because there are no moving parts in a SSD, it is less likely to fail.
Because they are much faster and more efficient at processing data and I/O performance, SSDs allow CPUs to process file calls much faster, allowing the CPU to complete more processes over a shorter period of time.
SSD is able to perform I/O requests at over 20 times faster than HDD. This of course results in much faster performance overall.
When compared to HDD, SSD were able to back up servers nearly 4 times faster. What this means for you is that up to date backups of your account are more readily available.
