Thinking that a server with SSD drives (solely) would dramatically increase the speed of my xenforo board, I moved the site to a SSD server. Boy was I surprised--not at how much faster it was but at how much faster it was not. In fact, I noticed very little, if any, speed improvement--certainly not enough to warrant the price premium involved in leasing an SSD server. My conclusion: save your money. Probably a "normal" server with enough RAM and good caching will perform every bit as quickly as one outfitted with SSD drives. Does your experience agree/disagree with this?
