I'm getting a new server for online hosting of lilypond stuff.

I'm not much of a hardware guy... within my hosting budget, I can
have either a 500 GB SDD, or a 1 TB HDD pn the system I'll
be leasing.

I've never had a system with a solid state drive... would it
be noticeably faster for compiling lilypond scores?


Lilypond is pretty much CPU limited, so the speed of the drive has almost no effect on compiling scores.  It's also single threaded, so the best option for speeding it up is an ultra-fast single core CPU - if one exists these days.
