Understanding SSDs and its Web Hosting Advantages

Storage is one of the critical aspects that a website owner must take into consideration when looking at hosting options. The device where your site is stored in will dictate how fast users can access it, among other things. SSD is one storage alternative for website owners. Solid state drives are non-volatile storage solutions that function in a similar mode to flash memory. The biggest difference an SSD has from the traditional HDD is the lack of moving parts. An HDD has a spinning disc that is responsible for reading and writing files. On the other hand, an SDD has a silicon chip and a floating gate transistor that holds the charge and prevent volatility. Solid-state drives are great innovations in hard driver architecture and are steadily growing as a preferred storage choice. Evolution of SSDs

A majority of enterprises uses HDDs for the cost-effectiveness that they offer. A hard disc drive relies on a magnet to provide data storage, which is relatively cheaper to manufacturers than silicon chips. In the 2000s, manufacturers started considering SSDs for consumer devices, and the Apple iPod was one device that brought the technology closer to users in 2005. Then, the technology combined HDDs and flash drives to come up with hybrid flash arrays. Enterprise multi-level cell was used in the earliest versions of commercial SSDs to improve write cycles.

Who Uses SSDs

The enterprises that use SSD for their storage have increased significantly over the years. Dell EMC is considered the first company that had SSD hardware for its enterprise storage in 2008. Global manufacturers like Samsung, IBM and Toshiba, have fueled the growth of solid-state drives with their latest models containing 3 NAND where flash memory cells are arranged in vertical stacks.

Pros of SSDs:

• Solid state drives have fast reading and writing speeds
• Less sensitive to damage due to lack of moving parts:

Disadvantages:

• Limited capacity in SSDs
• Expensive

Using SSD in Web Hosting

The biggest justification for spending money on SSD for an enterprise's web hosting is the speed. Compared to HDDs, solid state drives are approximately three times faster. Loading speeds are critical for websites because they determine user experience. With HDD, when people visit a website, the data is read from a spinning disc, and that physical motion interferes with speed. SSD web hosting improves loading speeds for web pages and consequently, allows more traffic. When you have a platform that consists of hundreds of plugins, you want assurances that visitors won't experience lagging every time they submit data queries.
