Save up to 30% on Dedicated Servers – Chat Now!

Hivelocity announced today they are now including a free 60GB Intel 520 series Solid State Hard Drive with all new servers. The free SSD is included as an extra drive and not a replacement for the SATA or SAS drives already included with the standard server configurations. Customers have the choice of having the free SSD mounted as the primary drive for their operating system or as a secondary drive for whatever use they choose.

“We have been offering solid state drives with our servers for the last year or two and every month they gain more traction. The speed benefits our customers with SSD have realized is fantastic and we figured a super fast server equates to a super happy customer so lets give them away for free,” said Hivelocity USA Sales Manager Drew Adams.

Performance increases with SSD over SATA or SAS are pretty significant. According to benchmarking results an Intel 520 series SSD provides a 3600% I/O per second performance increase over a standard 7200 rpm SATA drive. “Anyone who has a solid state drive on their new laptop at home knows how much faster the OS reacts and how fast read/writes occur. Servers are no different and our customers have raved about the boost in performance,” said Adams.

Hivelocity provides dedicated servers, VPS, colocation and cloud hosting solutions to customers in over 130 countries worldwide since 2002. Hivelocity maintains its headquarters at its Tampa, Florida data center.
