Server based SSD

Server based SSD (Solid State Disk) is a type of the SSD that is built to be directly connected to the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) system interface. It has brought about considerable enhancement in performance and significantly cuts down the latency. This happens because the SSD is moved closer to the application and processor. It has become a popular choice among the users due to the improved agility with low network latency issues.  There are many vendors offering server-based caching and storage devices. 

The server based SSD can be used in two ways. One is integrating the SSD into the PCIe slots in the servers and the second option is to add them as direct attached storage (DAS) device. They are typically the NAND flash-based SSDs. 

Server-based SSDs can also run as a cache in the server which enables easy working across multiple workloads without any manual performance analysis checks. The read cache automatically performs the analysis. It can move a slow performing data set into the SSD to enhance the speed. Caching also helps in moving large capacity of mechanical disks from the higher cost SSDs. Duplicating the most accessed data to the server based SSD storage helps improve efficiency and cuts down costs. 

Server based SSDs are now preferred by most of the web hosting companies as it helps in agility and performance thereby improving the clients business productivity. The data is constantly refreshed to keep the latest and most recently used data to be on the top.  

The server based SSD eliminates the performance blockages by caching network-based storage. It also lessens network latency and application spikes by removing the storage array of collection which otherwise is a big bottleneck by itself. Server based SSD can also maximize the acceleration across multiple networks, devices, backend protocols etc without getting entangled into any one specific design.
