SSD or SATA server?

07/31/2015 | Internet hosting |

Getting the right hard drive can affect the performance of your dedicated server that’s why you should ask yourself which hard drive you want to use for your data. In order to make the right decision, we have given a brief summary about the differences between SSD and SATA disks.

 

Reasons to get a dedicated server with SSD

SSD servers are considered to be faster and more powerful compared to a HDD server. Why is a SSD so much quicker than a traditional hard drive? This is due to the fact that there is no spinning disk like there is in a traditional HDD that has to read and write data to an actual disk. As a result you can expect quicker boot ups and faster file transfers. This makes SSD dedicated servers perfect for heavy hosting purposes such as online stores with Magento software or other applications that need fast data processing. SSD dedicated servers are usually more expensive but if you do care much about speed and power then it is recommended to order a SSD machine for your applications.

 

 

 

Reasons to get a dedicated server with HDD

The fact that SSD servers are much quicker doesn’t mean that servers with HDDs are not good enough for your applications. A HDD does the exact same job as a SSD, it boots your dedicated server, stores your applications and files but it is a much more affordable solution. Generally HDDs have a larger capacity and are an excellent choice for storing your data and to keep it for a long time.

 

Choices, Choices, Choices.

We have already mentioned that HDD is a cheap option and that It has a larger capacity so you should consider this option if these things matters to you the most. On the other hand a SSD dedicated server is an excellent choice when you are looking for fast data processing.

 

So these are the most important factors that you should consider during your decision. At Snel.com we offer dedicated machines with both SSD and HDD drives. Click here to see all available options.
