Why SSD is faster?
SSDs (Solid-State Drives) offer significantly faster data access speeds and lower latency compared to traditional HDDs (Hard Disk Drives). SSD disks in cloud servers offer enhanced performance, improved reliability, and energy efficiency. These benefits contribute to a faster and more reliable cloud infrastructure, delivering superior user experiences and server optimization. SSD is typically six times faster than an HDD.
Our premium SC2's use RAID-10 Pure SSD to give you maximized performance. Check out pricing here
Built for Performance
The primary advantage of SSD storage is its speed. Data read and write operations are faster, resulting in reduced response times and increased throughput.
High Degree of Redundancy
SSDs by default are more reliable than HDDs due to their lack of moving parts. This reduces the risk of data loss or downtime due to hardware failures.
Improved Workload Times
Servers that require high I/O operations will excel. On average HDDs will have about 300MBPS while SSDs push the boundary up to 1000MBPS in both read and write speeds.
What's the better choice?
Disks store all your data. SSD disks combined with a good amount of CPU cores can greatly improve the performance of your Cloud Server, enabling it to execute tasks more swiftly. With HDDs, the CPU often experiences delays while waiting for the disks to respond, especially under heavy workloads.
On the other hand, HDD works flawlessly if your site does not have much traffic or much processing to do.
If your application performs slowly on HDD, you can always switch to SSD on request. Pricing may differ. No downtime during the switch.
What's SSD Cached Technology?
SSD cached storage technology is an accelerated storage type that caches your VPS's frequently read/written data, allowing much faster IOPS compared to traditional Hard Disk Drives. SSD cached storage has read speeds that are almost on par with SSD.
Our budget VPS line use SSD cached technology to improve overall speed coupled with Intel CPUs to give you the best price to performance.
