SSD Hosting & All the Features You Need
SSD Hosting for Database Driven Applications
Running a large blog, eCommerce store, or custom application requires a lot of database input and output (I/O). As your site gets more popular and traffic starts to grow, your hard drives will start getting more and more concurrent I/O requests. During peak viewing times, the amount of I/O requests can slow down the recall of information from your database. This is especially true for sites on traditional "spinning media" disk drives. The physical limitations of spinning hard disks and the mechanical head restricts the amount of information that can be requested at a given time.
This is where our SSD Hosting is superior. With a lack of moving parts, data transfer is only restricted by the speed of the network (which is why our shared servers are already on blazingly fast 1Gbps networks). We've benchmarked our SSDs against mechanical hard disks and, as expected, SSDs massively out perform hard disk drives on I/O transfer.
In the benchmark test to the left, we tested our already fast SAS 15K drives against 1TB Samsung solid-state drives during busy I/O periods. The result, SSDs pushed out 95% more data than these hard disk drives!Choose Your Plan
HDDs have two things working against them when it comes to data retrieval. The first is the rotational latency of the disk. The second is they seek time that it takes for the read/write head to find the data on the disk.
SSD servers have neither problem.
In this benchmark, we compared the latency of our SSD hosting servers versus a server with hard disk drives under high network load. As you can see, hard disk drives take about 20 times longer to access data during periods of heavy I/O requests.Choose Your Plan
