One of the major questions when choosing or planing to host a website, is it hosted on SSD or HDD drives, here is a quick view of the major differences between the traditional HDD and the recent SSD drives.
|File Copy / Write Speed|
Normally above 200 MB/s and up to 500 MB/s for recent advanced drives
The range can be anywhere from 50 – 120MB / s
average time between failure rate of 2.0 M hours
Average time between failure rate of 1.5 M hours
|Operating System Boot Time||Around 10-13 seconds||Around 30-40 seconds|
As you can see SSD disks can write on average speed 300 MB/s which is double spped of the normal SSD.
HostPro is using only SSD for all hosted services to guarantee the best performance for both light websites and the high intense applications like SQL server databases that request High IO operations.
