A Detailed Insight into SSD and HDD Hosting The
Much-Needed Comparison
  • AMAZE COMMUNICATION

2
Choosing the right type of storage
  • Of all the choices one has to make while
    investing in a web hosting package, choosing the
    right type of storage (choosing between SSD
    (Solid State Drive) and HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
    remains an important one.
  • After all, the decision is going to impact your
    page load speed and website performance.

The difference between SSD and HDD hosting
  • The web hosting technology has changed
    significantly over the past few years. One of the
    major changes noticed in the industry is the
    inclination of web hosting companies towards SSD.
  • While some webhosts still use traditional HDD
    storage devices particularly for dedicated
    servers and VPS plans, many have upgraded their
    hosting plans to SSD to provide their customers
    with better performance and faster speeds.
  • So, here is a comprehensive guide elucidating the
    difference between SSD and HDD hosting based on
    varied factors.

4
Data Security
  • Data security is a key consideration when it
    comes to cloud hosting operations. Most of the
    data security and storage issues on the cloud can
    be attributed to hardware failure, which can
    occur due to a number of reasons.
  • The most common cause of server failure is
    bombarding hardware with too many I/O requests.
    The faster processing ability of SSDs helps to
    mitigate the overload on the hardware to a great
    extent.

5
Hosting Speed
  • Speed is another crucial factor highly considered
    when comparing SSD hosting and HDD hosting. The
    speed at which users can access and read data on
    your server can significantly impact their
    browsing experience and thus your conversion
    rates.
  • HDDs use a metal disk with a magnetic coating to
    store server data. The faster the disk spins, the
    faster it can load and store data.
  • SSDs, on the other hand, lack moving parts and
    instead use microchips to store information like
    a flash drive.

6
Cost
  • Theres no getting around the fact the newer,
    better and cutting-edge technology always costs
    more than the older versions. Being a newer
    technology than HDD, SSD hosting comes with
    higher costs.
  • However, with a rapid increase in adoption of SSD
    hosting, the cost difference in both the server
    hosting options has begun to reduce.
  • Lets have a quick rundown on the pros and cons
    of SSD and HDD hosting we have concluded through
    the above comparison.

Pros and Cons of SSD and HDD Hosting
Cost-effective
Greater storage capacity
Easy configuration
Less reliable and more failure-prone
Slow speed
High power draw

Wrapping up
  • Apparently, SSD has gained substantial popularity
    especially amongst dedicated hosting providers.
    However, you need to consider these differences
    between the two hosting plans, their pros and
    cons, in order to decide what would benefit your
    business more.
  • So, sit back and decide what sounds like a great
    deal for you tons of storage for some reasonable
    bucks or high performance for an additional cost.
    An informed decision will help you meet your
    business requirements and ensure best ROI.
