Root Server with SSD

Areas of application for servers with an SSD

Since servers with an SSD are easily capable of providing higher performance, which can clearly be seen from the benchmark, for example, they can best be exploited for use in more demanding projects. An SSD server can act faster, smoother, and more flexibly and it can also manage, examine and execute multiple transactions simultaneously. It's especially worthwhile to rent a dedicated server with an SSD in cases where it is necessary to frequently access a database. Thanks to its high performance, rapid speed and remarkable durability, a dedicated server with an SSD offers an enormously broad range of uses.

What is an SSD?

All you need to know about SSDs

Just like a hard drive or a USB stick, a solid state drive is a storage medium. Unlike storage technology as it has been known until now, it is a flash-based storage technology and in future it will replace all current storage media. In German, solid state drive means something like "solid-body drive" or "semiconductor drive". An SSD is installed and accessed in a way similar to current hard drives. Various comparative tests between SSD and HDD hard drives have shown that conventional hard drives are decisively outperformed by SSD hard drives in many different disciplines.

Examples of these disciplines include performance, reliability and speed. Reading the SSD drive is up to 3.9 times faster and writing 3.5 times faster than conventional HDDs. With no moving parts, an SSD drive operates completely unhindered and at an extraordinary speed compared to the common hard drive. Aside from that, conventional hard drives still currently offer higher maximum storage capacities. The performance is reflected in the price. Currently an SSD drive costs more per gigabyte than a SATA hard drive. Consequently servers with SSDs are more expensive than those with HDDs.

Advantages of a server with an SSD

How much faster are servers with SSD drives?

When an SSD drive is used in a server, many positive aspects such as robustness are not relevant any more. What are my advantages in a server with an SSD?

First of all: A root server with an SSD reacts much faster and smoother than its predecessor. In other words, anyone who is on the lookout for a dedicated server that can execute, organise and manage many processes and administration tasks simultaneously should definitely consider purchasing a root server with an SSD. For the simple reason that an SSD drive is not only smaller but also roughly 95% lighter than a typical hard drive, the user doesn't only save on electricity, but also on space for the storage of his SSDs. The acquisition of a root server with an SSD is especially worthwhile in cases of larger and more demanding projects that require their own databases and nodes.

In cases of smaller projects, such as individual web sites, a dedicated server with a conventional hard drive is much more worthwhile than a server with an SSD. The reason for this is that, for smaller projects, a database is rarely used, or not at all.
