Question: Will having SSD drives instead of regular hard drives really speed up my site?
Answer: Yes, using SSD drives instead of regular hard drives will show a difference with your site. Sold state drives (SSD) are faster in both reading and writing data to the drives compared to disk hard drives. SSD drives do not use any moving disks to store data instead the data is written and read like memory.
SSD drives alone will not show a great noticeable difference but there will be a increase in speed when loading your website. When your website is attempting to write and read data, it will also be faster than a disk hard drive. SSD drives used with fast RAM and a fast processor (CPU) will also help make your site load faster.
