    The Future is SSD

    SSDs (Solid State Drives) are a lot less likely to crash or fail than hard disk drives because they don’t contain the moving parts of HDDs. This lowers their probability of malfunctioning, since any malfunctioning moving part of an HDD could cause the whole drive to fail or crash.

    SSDs are also faster than HDDs, which improves your computer’s overall performance and significantly decreases loading times. This is especially critical when you’re constantly working with gigabyte-sized files on a regular basis (like high quality photography or video editing).

    Surprisingly, SSDs are now poised to become cheaper than HDDs due to new technology that allows for lower-cost production of SSD-related chips. PC World projects that HDDs and SSDs will be almost equal in price by the summer of 2017. This isn’t a blind forecast: SSDs used to cost almost $1 per gigabyte in 2012, but are currently $0.39 per gigabyte.

    It’s also projected that by 2017, almost 50 percent of all notebooks will be using SSDs rather than HDDs.

    Why not get a headstart and have your machines use SSDs? SSDs aren’t just more reliable than HDDs, they also take up less room and are less noisy. Your data is more valuable than the physical drive itself, so you should take the extra precautions to ensure your data remains safe and protected. If you’re unsure about whether you should use SSDs over HDDs, contact us. Global IP Networks employs data security experts who are well-versed in data disaster prevention and data security. We’ll help you decide what’s best for your needs.
