It is NASA’s 55th Birthday and world is ready to offer assistance. Russia’s Pirate Party is willing to assist US during such crisis by offering them Dedicated servers to host the US space agency’s website. Despite so many recent clashes between USA and Russia, with Edward Snowden and Syria, Russia still stands firm at USA’s side.

Russia Pirates Party wrote in its letter:

To NASA, USA from Pirate Party of Russia

Dear Madame/Sir,

We do care about the situation around your web site and the budget crisis in USA. Thereby we would like to offer you bulletproof collocation or dedicated servers on our hosting platform till the end of the crisis. We stand for Internet privacy, and as the result you would not have to worry about programs such as PRISM and other illegal activities of secret services of different countries. Your traffic, your activity and the activity of your users will be in safety.

We love Mars!

Bulletproof collocation or Dedicated Servers to host NASA’s website is certainly a pretty generous offer to America from Russia’s Pirate Party. Some people love Mars more than their own country.

If America is skeptical about hosting with Pirate Party, at this juncture we would like to chip in and offer Dedicated Servers temporarily through our sister concern WebHost.US.Com which is dedicated for US Web Hosting and provide assistance to United States during such troubled times.

What is HDD ?

HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive. These drives have been used in many electronics devices since more than decade. They contain rotating disk with magnetic head.  Due to the moving parts they are more prone to get damaged, if the read/write processes are being performed vigorously. They also take more time load OS as compared to SSD drives. We can also here the noise done by them at time of booting process and also while performing read/write operations.

Benefits of SSD drives:

  1. It contains no moving parts. Due to this they are more durable as compared with HDD drives.
  2. They have much faster read/write speed with compared to HDD drives.
  3. Faster data accessing speed as compared to HDD.
  4. As they have no moving parts inside, they reduced heat generation.
  5. Power consumption is another benefit of SSD drive.
  6. SSD drive plays major role in consumer electronics as they require less space as compared with HDD.
  7. They are more suitable to portable devices like Laptops, tablets as they are more prone to movements.

The only drawback of SSD drives are that they are more costly then HDD and they are available is specific size and capacity like 120GB, 256GB, 500GB or 1TB only. In order to get this capacity, you need to count big money.

The monkeys employed by Youtube are certainly skilled and very competent as the downtime was just for less than 2 minutes. Lets keep a track on these monkeys to acquire them when they quit working for YouTube.. not likely! Anyways, YouTube is up and I am going back to check the funny cat videos 😉
