Cloud server is a hosting service made available to customers on demand via internet portal and can be powered up almost instantly. Instead of being provided by one server, cloud servers are provided by multiple connected servers that comprise a cloud.
Cloud server offers the advantages of increased accessibility and reliability, seamless scalability and potential cost savings. Customers are freed from having to invest in on-premises servers and hardware, and they pay only for the resources they consume.
Why SSDs are used on our Cloud Servers?
Traditional spinning hard drive (HDD) is the basic nonvolatile storage on a server. Unlike system memory, it stays even you turn the system off. Basically, hard drives are metal platters with a magnetic coating to store your data. A read/write head known as Giant Magneto-Resistive (GMR) head on an arm accesses the data while the platters are spinning in a hard drive enclosure.SSD does much the same job like an HDD, but instead of a magnetic coating on top of platters, the data is stored on interconnected NAND flash mounted on circuit boards, and are shock resistant up to 1500g/0.5ms.SSD is a lot faster, almost instantaneous data access, quicker boot-up, faster file transfers, improve computing experience significantly over hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the GMR heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.
