Dallas, Texas – (The Hosting News) – March 4, 2009 – Virtual data center services provider, SoftLayer Technologies, has extended its portfolio of available server hardware options with the addition of solid state drives (SSDs).
SSDs are an enterprise-level solution for reliable and secure storage. Unlike disk-based storage drives, SSDs have no moving parts. This decreases their power consumption, cooling needs, and performance latency. It also greatly reduces their risk of mechanical failure, making SSDs more durable than traditional disk-based drives.
