Purchasing chassis with large numbers of HDDs is one way to configure your infrastructure, but such a solution can provide less than optimal performance, take up a large amount of prime data center space, and increase power and cooling costs. Configuring your servers with SSDs, on the other hand, can dramatically improve performance while simultaneously reducing the overall power consumption of your data center.
In our tests, replacing 24 HDDs in an external chassis with only six internal Kingston SSDs boosted total database performance by as much as 91.8 percent. Not only did the server with Kingston SSDs outperform the HDD solution, it also consumed 32.5 percent less power while active and 51.0 percent less power when idle. Such dramatic performance increases and reduction in power consumption can make Kingston SSDs a compelling choice for the database servers in your data center.
