Everything SSD


Who has experience with running just SSD Servers nothing else, what where the speeds like and did you have any issues with reliability? Did the drives work ok? How often did you need to replace them? What was your data usage like?

Re: Everything SSD


We have run a server node using only SSD which work perfectly on a dedicated server, very quick load speeds, almost 2 or 3 times faster at times than the HDD servers we also tested. Reliability was good, but they did take a slightly longer time to start working properly after we tested a power failure. We've found HDD are a bit more reliable despite their moving parts and possible failures there. And SSD vps benefits are almost un-noticeable, so we still prefer HDD for our VPS servers

Re: Everything SSD


To be honest with you it all depends on the server hardware. Most of the companies these days are moving towards SSD's and that too on shared hosting plans.

Re: Everything SSD


true, SSD is the future, no doubt. There's just a few optimization hurdles that need to be overcome before it really becomes the standard. VPS management with SSD requires a specialized manager, which doesn't give as much benefit for the cost, so it's still got a ways to go to be fully adopted

I don't have any experience with them but they are popular for a reason.

Re: Everything SSD


We ran most of our servers over multiple hot swap SSD with Raid 10, is expensive but you avoid a lot of headaches and you basically dont think about drive failures. Speed depends from the type of SSD and also raid configuration, compared with sata drives speed/reliability is huge.

Re: Everything SSD


SSD are faster then HDD and generally more reliable as it has no moving parts.

Re: Everything SSD


Hi, I believe that it it depends on client's usage of Server. SSD are quite expensive than HDD. Where now some of the clients require Affordable and reliable Hosting services. This is the main drawback we can see while choosing SSD Hosting services.

Re: Everything SSD


We use Pure SSD for our Shared servers and also for our Docker testing nodes.
We have not had any issues with them and obviously the performance increase is massive. Of course the drawback is less space so people have to decide what is more important to them

Re: Everything SSD


SSD for today is a must of reliable hosts targeted on performance, if you want faster website loading, database accessibility and uploading speed
