Solid State Storage at Liquid Web

We offer the world’s best Solid State Storage Technology with unmatched hard drive performance. Our Solid State Drives (SSD) offer I/O rates and access times that are impossible to achieve with a disk-based system. These drives are ideal for high availability web applications because I/O wait times and bottlenecks are virtually eliminated, allowing your server’s processing power and bandwidth to be fully utilized. Their lack of moving parts means the SSDs are more reliable and have a longer lifespan than traditional hard drives.

Ideal Applications

  • High Database Concurrency
  • Large, Read-Intensive Databases
  • Transaction Logs
  • Storing Indexes
