Our SSD hosting is ideal for high availability websites and applications because I/O wait times and bottlenecks are virtually eliminated with more IOPS for data manipulation, allowing your SSD hosting's processing power and bandwidth to be fully utilized.
SSD hosting delivers disk I/O rates and access times that are impossible to achieve with hard disk based hosting. SSDs use solid construction microchips instead of spinning discs that are used in HDDs, reducing the random access time to 0.1 milliseconds while the fastest HDDs have 2.9 ms. The lack of moving parts makes SSDs faster and last longer than HDDs. This is why SSD hosting is faster and more reliable than traditional HDD based hosting. This, in turn, results in faster load times for websites, emails, and applications on SSD hosting.
SSD storage gives you much quicker data access times making your website much more responsive and allowing you to run scripts with ease. With SSD storage setup, your website will be many times faster than any traditional setup.
SSDs use nonvolatile memory to store data, so that data isn't lost in a power failure. RAID10 grants redundancy and prevents data loss in the event of a disk failure. We use SSDs in RAID10, take backups weekly and store the backups on a remote server.
You will see instant performance gain when you migrate to our SSD hosting from a normal web hosting. Our properly optimized server with higher server resource allocation per account delivers higher performance and speed for your websites.
Pure SSD hosting means all your files, emails and databases; everything will be stored on SSD drives. Some hosts only store databases or emails on SSD but not everything. We offer pure SSD hosting where everything on your account will be stored on SSDs.
Those who need fast websites are the ones who need it the most. If your website is heavy in graphics, content, based on databases or applications, it will be well worth to switch to SSD hosting.
When a visitor enters a dynamic website such as WordPress, the visit triggers database queries and content access at the same time. On SSD hosting, all these happens at a much faster speed. It delivers better core performance, faster content delivery, faster email, faster database queries, faster caching and can handle more traffic. Faster websites increase overall usability, that means more search engine visibility, higher SEO ranking, more interaction, more page views, and more revenue.
Traditional hosting uses HDDs with moving parts. The physical movement takes a sizeable amount of time. SSDs are solid construction microchips. It can access data instantly and simultaneously, delivering up to 20x faster latency than HDDs.
HDDs need to rotate their spinning platters and move the actuator arm to locate data before it can be read or modified, SSDs don’t have this issue, so seek times (the time it takes to “find” your data on the drive) are significantly faster.
SSD hosting massively outperforms normal web hosting on data (I/O) transfer. Tests against SAS 15K drives and 1TB Samsung SSDs in busy I/O periods show that the SSDs pushed out 95% more data than the hard disk drives!
SSD is less susceptible to damage from shock or vibration & allows a greater range of operational temperatures due to lack of moving parts. At the end of life, SSDs prevent write access; data can still be read, while HDDs give up and die.
Blog, ecommerce site, or custom app needs a lot of database input and output (I/O). A traditional disk is slow and restricts I/O operations because of its moving parts; SSDs are solid construction microchips and can handle blazing fast I/O.
SSDs consume around 80% less power on a per gigabyte basis, and run cooler than HDDs. Therefore, SSD hosting consumes less energy and has less heat emission than a traditional web hosting which is more environment friendly.
HDDs have two major physical limitations working against it when it comes to data access. The first is the rotational latency of the spinning platters. The second is the seek time that it takes for the read/write head to find the data on the disk. SSDs have neither of these problems. This is why SSD hosting is up to 20 times faster to access data than a traditional web hosting.
Traditional web hosting uses HDDs that store data randomly on rotating disks and an actuator arm with a “read and write head” that reads the information has to move to access the stored data. The physical movement takes a sizeable amount of time. This is the main reason why visitors see a delay when a web page is loading on a traditional web hosting.
On SSD hosting, data is read and written almost instantly and simultaneously. SSD uses solid construction microchips with no moving parts. It is similar to a USB memory stick that uses flash memory to store and access data. It does not rely on spinning platters. It does not matter that the data is not in sequential order, an SSD hosting server can quickly pick and choose the pieces of data it needs.
SSDs typically have random access times of under 0.1 milliseconds, whereas high-end server HDDs have random access times that are no faster than 2.9 milliseconds.
This is why load times of your websites are significantly faster on an SSD hosting. Therefore, the browsing experience is significantly more pleasant. SSD hosting delivers more reliability and stability of performance because of the sturdier construction of SSDs. In summary, SSD hosting has better core performance, faster database queries, faster caching and can handle more traffic. The bottom line is that SSD hosting is simply faster and more reliable.
SSD hosting is a web hosting service with servers that use SSDs as storage drives. Zipa Hosting offers pure SSD Hosting. SSDs provide higher input/output (I/O) speeds compared to HDDs. This means by using SSD hosting, you'll see an enormous increase in your website performance.
Zipa Hosting offers pure SSD hosting without any gimmicks, so, yes, everything on your SSD hosting account will be stored on SSD drives.
SSD hosting is significantly faster than traditional web hosting due to the huge difference in I/O speeds.
Yes, all of the storage drives in our hosting servers are SSDs.
Other web hosting service providers might use SSDs for just a part of their server configuration and brand it as an SSD hosting service. Although this type of configuration will be slightly faster than a traditional server setup, it can't match the performance that our pure SSD configuration offers.
Even the cheapest SSDs with triple level cell NAND can withstand the entire capacity of the drive being written every day for nearly 10 years before deteriorating. In the past, it’s true that performance would degrade with time due to the need to erase a cell before writing to it. Nowadays, the invention of TRIM technology has corrected this, now the operating system tells the SSD to pre-emptively erase unused cells so that can be immediately written to.
To maximize hardware reliability, we use SSDs on a hardware RAID 10 array to enhance data integrity, redundancy, to gain additional IOPS speed and to prevent data loss due to SSD failures. On top of that, we enforce multiple backup systems to safeguard your data further.
