HDD vs. SSD
Has the time come for SSDs to replace HDDs?
Solid state disks or drives (SSDs) have been gaining popularity because they solve many tasks much more efficiently than conventional hard disk drives (HDDs). Strictly speaking, SSDs are not hard drives at all, but have been described as devices whose memory chips and advanced controller mimic a conventional hard drive, almost like a high-capacity USB stick or flash drive. Whereas HDDs have spinning parts and save data electromechanically, SSDs store persistent data electronically on flash memory using integrated circuits (ICs).
Helping you to get the most out of your server
Solid state drives offer immediate access to data and greater stability due to the lack of moving components that could fail or break. As controllers are used to retrieve information from microchips, I/O rates and access times are much higher than could be attained with hard disk drives and therefore your server's processing power and bandwidth can be fully utilized. The SSD saves all cached data in the process of being written prior to shutting down, which minimizes data loss due to power issues. Devoid of mechanical and optical devices, there is no significant heat, noise or vibration to negatively impact on server performance.
Does your project need an SSD?
SSDs are the right choice as far as servers with frequently accessed files (e.g. large read-intensive file-based databases, storage indexes and high-end storage) are concerned. Read times for data are taking place at previously unimaginable speeds with the right controller technology: reduced read latency times, boot times and application launch times are achieved leading to improved search engine rankings and conversion rates.
High in traffic and in I/O rates
SSDs are perfect for content-rich, dynamic and interactive websites that attract high numbers of visitors making use of interactive elements, transactions and web applications such as video streaming/conferencing, virtual client support and big data analytics. Its electronic data saving process minimizes data errors and ensures data integrity. Finally, an SSD can be used as a high-performance cache and device for data center storage upgrades.
What the Intel® SSD DC S3500 / DC S3520 series offers
This Intel series of data center SSDs is all about speed and reliability. Known for its demanding application workloads, web hosting is where the SSD DC S3500 and DC S3520 excel. Websites load quickly thanks to 20nm and 16 nm 3D NAND flash technology and sequential read and write speeds of up to 500 MB/s and 450 MB/s, respectively. Security features have been devised with enterprises in mind so your data is protected end-to-end against loss and corruption by multiple secure checkpoints and separate memory areas reserved for redundant data storage. In addition, the DC S3500 / DC S3520 series combines enhanced power-loss data protection with built-in capacitors, providing a short period of backup power to the drive allowing it to finish operations in the event of power loss.
