SSD stands for solid state drives and SSD web hosting uses solid state drives. SSD based server provides more performance than traditional SATA HDD based server.
Most web hosting companies offer SSD powered server now. Today we will discuss the advantages of SSD web hosting.
The main advantage of the SSD drive is, it is much faster than HDD since there is no physical moving part in SSD drive.
2. High Data Transfer Speed
Since there is no moving parts in SSD drive, it provides high data transfer speed than SATA HDD. High data transfer speed provides better performance.
Traditional HDD consists of various mechanical components and therefore it requires more power and they are also prone to damages. Solid State Drive (SSD) has microchips and thus it is more durable and reduce repairing cost.
With Microchip technology, SSD is more reliable than HDD.
In SATA HDD, it requires to defragment the drive on regular basis to avoid performance issue however in SSD, we do not require to defragment the drive. There is no fragmentation issue in SSD drive.
6. No cooling required
SSD drive does not require cooling as there is no mechanical parts which can generate heat. With HDD, high temperature affectes the life of HDD but it is not the case with SSD.
