Root Server with SSD

More performance with SSD drives

What is an SSD?

An SSD (solid state drive) is, first of all, a storage medium just like a hard drive or a USB thumb drive. In contrast to the other storage technologies, however, an SSD uses Flash memory technology. An SSD drive is integrated in the server and used just like a conventional hard drive. Tests have confirmed the assumption that SSD drives far outweigh traditional hard drives not only in terms of speed, but also in durability and reliability.

For example, SSD drives are up to 3.9 times faster in reading and 3.5 times faster in writing to the storage medium. Because there are no movable parts in operating an SSD, in contrast to a conventional hard drive, they are completely failure-free and extremely fast. The high-quality performance is recognizable in the price. An SSD hard drive costs more per gigabyte than a SATA hard drive. Additionally, the traditional hard drives still include higher maximum storage capacities.

Benefits of a server with SSD

If an SSD RAID is used in a server, some of the positive features, such as the robustness of the new flash storage medium no longer play any role. What advantages do I have in a server with SSD?

First of all, the I/O performance of the root server with SSD is much higher compared to SATA hard drives. Because of the high I/O performance of SSD hard drives (94,000 IOPS) the server works faster and more smoothly than before. Those needing a dedicated server which will perform the numerous processes and administration at the same time should, at the very least, consider leasing such a server with SSD. Furthermore, the dedicated server with SSD impresses with better performance, flexibility and temperature conditions.

While the core temperature of a dedicated server with a SATA/HDD hard drive is about 50° C, a dedicated server with SSD registers a tolerable approx. 30° C. Use of a root server with SSD is especially advantageous if larger projects which require their own databases must be executed.

Applications for servers with SSD

Since SSD servers can provide distinctly greater performance, what one can see, for example, on the basis of the benchmark is, they can best be utilized for larger and more demanding projects. An SSD server can perform faster, smoother, more flexibly and can manage, check and execute multiple operations simultaneously. It is especially advantageous to lease a dedicated server with SSD for applications involving the use of databases. Thanks to its high performance, rapid speed and great reliability, a dedicated server with SSDs permits a very wide range of applications.

Server offers with SSD hard drives and SSD RAID

All server products from webtropia.com are available with SSD hard drives at no additional charge. You can lease your VPS server with SSD at favourable conditions. Should the resources of a vServer not be sufficient, start your web project with our inexpensive root server with SSD. Our dedicated servers can also be ordered with SSD hard drives. With the dedicated server you also get an SSD RAID, so that the safety of your SSD hard drives can be guaranteed in a RAID in the event an SSD should fail.
