Difference between SATA and SSD 1TB size for both
Posted 26 August 2009 - 04:14 PM
Can some1 please explain to me the difference between SSD and SATA HDD specially that both have reached a size of 1 TB, having in mind that both will be working on servers where it cannot tolerate any latency.

Speed varies between individual drives. Check the individual drive specs. Note: read and write will vary, with SSD often being better at reads than writes.

SSD is much faster because it has no discs and does not need to spin.
Sata = Serial ATA
Sata has discs and is measured in speed by the RPMs it spins said discs.

One other thing to take into consideration is the ridiculous price difference between the two. The only TB SDD on newegg is over $3,000. Are the potential benefits worth the cost? I'm certain the potential speed benefits of a SSD are considerably reduced when you compare it to the price. If you're worried about latency on a server, one way or another you're going to get it. Whether it's read/write time, network latency or just "waiting in line" on the server to do what you need to do, you're going to take some kind of hit. I'm far from a server optimization expert, but what I see alot of people doing is getting a number of SCSI SATA drives and setting them up in a particular RAID setup to maximize the speeds. Someone else can jump in here and clarify/correct.
