Which is better for me, SSD or HDD?

Solid State Drives (SSDs) including embedded flash drives have become more and more popular. They have no moving parts, they can read, write, and access data faster than HDDs.

Many computers and tablets now come equipped with an SSD pre-installed instead of a traditional hard drive. Solid state drives access data faster, accelerate apps, and speed-up a computer’s boot-up time.

Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) have been a trusted data storage device for many years now. They are typically less in price than SSDs and are available in higher capacities.

The biggest advantage of Hard Disk Drives is that they are able to store lots of data cheaply. However, moving parts, vibration, and high temperatures have always been potential issues with HDDs.

WD Gold Enterprise Class SATA Hard Drive

Handle tough workloads with enterprise-class WD Gold™ HDDs. These are available in 1TB to 20TB capacities and are highly reliable solutions for demanding storage environments. These HDDs provide up to 2.5M hours MTBF, they have vibration protection technology and they also draw low power because of HelioSeal™ technology [for 12TB and above].

These HDDs are specifically designed for use in enterprise-class data centers and storage systems. WD Gold™ SATA HDDs are known to deliver world-class performance.

Seagate's IronWolf

IronWolf provides a workload rate of 180 TB/year with scalable 24×7 performance. It can easily handle multi-bay NAS environments, as well as capacities up to 18 TB.

It fits applications like 1- to 8-bay network attached storage (NAS).

Enterprise Grade MySQL™ with native ZNS compatibility

Western Digital as well as Percona have fully integrated devices, protocol, and software to achieve a full stack MySQL solution based on ZNS and MyRocks.​ OLTP workloads can realize a new level of performance with best-in-class latencies by using the Ultrastar DC ZN540 and Percona Server for MySQL. This maxed-out device throughput under real-world conditions and these provide 7–25% more usable space per device.

All of these benefits are free of software license costs or vendor lock-in due to open-source software and the NVMe ZNS standards.

Which is more durable – SSD or HDD?

SSDs are lighter in weight than HDDs. They use less power and have virtually no vibration because of no moving parts. They can also survive an accidental drop better than an HDD.

SSDs store data electronically on ‘cells’, which allows you to access data quicker than a spinning HDD. Generally, SSDs can be more durable than HDDs when it comes to portability and accidental drops.

HDDs are still used by big institutions such as banks, governments and data centers because it is more cost efficient as the price per GB is less than that of SSDs and when you’re dealing with huge amounts of data, cost becomes a factor quickly.

Speed is an advantage in business – especially when dealing with large amounts of files.

Gaming

A fast SSD or HDD will give you an advantage in-game loading speeds, so you can access your game data faster

 

Operating System

Replace the HDD with an SSD or add an SSD to an HDD system to significantly speed-up boot time and accelerate application load times.

Fast Data Transfer

A faster HDD or SSD will greatly decrease the time it takes to transfer, write, or read data. This is key when managing large files or large amounts of files

Quick File Access

Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can access files faster than an HDD, which has to spin-up and find the files.
