How To Choose The Right Disk Between Ssd And Hdd For Your Server

How To Choose The Right Disk Between SSD And HDD For Your Server?

Choosing the right disk between SSD and HDD for server are very important. The choice of the disk depends upon the need of the particular customer. 

SSD is the right choice if main requirements of the customer revolves around speed, fragmentation (technical aspect related to speed), noise, form factor, and ruggedness. HDD becomes the right choice when prime considerations revolve around capacity, availability, and most importantly price. 

Besides these there are many other factors that a customer must keep in mind while choosing between SSD and HDD for the server -

When the requirement is for transactional workloads, SSD disk should be chosen instead of 10,000 RPM or 15,000 RPM drives. With advancement in SSD technology, their effectiveness even surpasses durability and reliability of 15,000 RPM drive systems. This is because to achieve a particular IOPS level, much lesser SSDs are required.

- Email servers, hypervisor environments, and databases are some of the highly random applications that benefit from high IOPS drives.
