Work of the sites located on server with SSD
In recent years the rapid popularity of SSD solid state gain media on which information is stored in the memory cells, without the use of moving parts. The main advantage of server with SSD - great speed data reading, especially for random reading. In random read speed of these discs are significantly higher than even the most powerful storage arrays from 8-12 faster than HDD discs.
Server with SSD also demonstrate good writing speed, comparable to conventional disk arrays. Unfortunately, random blocks of data write performance is low and does not provide decisive advantages over conventional disk recording, but the highest reading speed still provides a significant performance benefit.
On our servers we actively use SSD for the following purposes:
On the SSD disks taken by most modern database mySQL / Postgres (up to 90% of resources) servers.
All modern Linux servers used FlashCache technology that automatically places the most requested information on the SSD drives.
Network Storage VDS Hyper-V servers are also using technology to cache data on the SSD.
In which cases server with SSD will help the project?
Some modern portals require for their work appeals to a large number of files on the disk. For example, systems such as 1C-Bitrix, Joomla, Wordpress, and the like, may require treatment to hundreds of files on the disk to generate a single page.
In that case, if the pages of the site are in the disk cache in the server memory, things can work quickly, but if the site offers a rare and absent files in the cache, then no disk system can not provide instant opening page of the site. This effect is called "cold start".
Sometimes a variety of disk operations required site and for further work. For example, if a site a wide variety of data - a large catalog of products, a lot of information pages, then keep everything in RAM is impossible even for the visited site.
Guaranteed placement of all the site files on the SSD disk can significantly reduce these symptoms. In the event that a site for an ordinary operation requires an appeal to a large number of files, the site will begin to work much faster.
