What are SSDs?
Solid State Disk drives use non-volatile memory to store information. Unlike regular volatile memory (RAM), this means that the data isn’t lost when power is disconnected. Traditional drives need to spin around their platters to locate data before it can be read or modified – SSDs don’t have this issue, so seek times (the time it takes to “find” your data on the drive) are up significantly faster.
Web Hosting Performance
The benefits of faster data access for your server software should be obvious, but are of particular importance to modern data-driven sites that dynamically generate pages from hundreds of database queries.
