The Benefits of Solid State Drives for Shared Hosting
InMotion Hosting's Business Hosting plans are now using Solid-State Drives (SSDs), a type of hard drive that uses no mechanical parts and provides substantial performance upgrades from traditional spinning drives. Solid State Drives give you faster read/write speeds, can handle more disk requests and can push through significantly more data than a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD).
During testing on our best-in-class servers, we found:
- SSDs perform about 20 times faster than HDDs
- SSDs were able to push through about 65% more data from the server
- During times of high I/O requests, these data numbers rose to approximately 95% when compared to HDDs
Bottom line: the SSD upgrade to Business Hosting plans means improved performance, increased uptime and lower power needs.
