They also recycle their older servers instead of throwing in garbage, plant trees, and reduce trash. A2 was the first provider that offer Solid State Disk Drives (SSDs) because these drives consume less energy as compared to HDDs. The main reason behind this step of using SSDs is that SSDs store information such as read and write requests in microchips, while traditional HDDs use a mechanical arm to process information from a certain location to another. SSDs contribute a lot to the speed and load time of your site.
