Solid State Drives (SSD) have been increasingly appearing on cloud servers and are possibly the hard drives of the future. Traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDD) have a hard time keeping up processing speeds as they have reached the maximum potential for speed. SSD drives on the other hand can serve up content at a much faster rate, use less power but come with a higher price.
With software applications becoming more powerful pushing big data and using greater server side processing we see SSD drives as the way of the future for server builds. Our dedicated and some shared servers offer SSD and are blazing fast ( with large enterprise applications) in comparison to HDD. The question really comes down to what application or website you are looking to launch online. If it’s a standard website then HDD will work. If your application is looking to grow, scale and a integral part of your business then SDD might be a good consideration.comments powered by Disqus
