To understand the differences between SSD hosting and regular hosting, you need to delve a little into the technical part of the issue and figure out what SSD and HDD are.
HDD (Hard Disk Driver) is a device that is designed to store information using magnetic recording technology. This technology has almost reached the peak of its development, because appeared in 1956 year. These discs have very important advantages, namely:
The construction itself is quite archaic. It has a rotating magnetic disk and a magnetic head. Rotating elements increase noise as well as reduce reliability.
SSD (Solid State Drive) is a new type of disks that uses microchips for storing information. This allows you to access the memory cells almost instantly. Therefore, the main advantage of this disk is speed, high reliability (no moving parts), noiselessness, low power consumption. The disadvantages include a higher price, as well as problems with the very first SSDs with the number of overwrites after which nothing could be written to the disk. The last problem is completely solved, and the price of SSD falls every year, but still remains much higher than the HDD.
Therefore, if you need high performance and reliability, then choose SSD.
