SolaDrive is now offering NVMe (non-volatile memory) SSD at our 3 locations for all VPS services. A fourth location in Singapore will be available with NVMe VPS later this month.
NVMe SSD drives are the latest technology and offer the fastest transfer and I/O speeds. In fact, they’re about 6x faster than traditional SATA SSD. Hard Drives and traditional SSD use SATA III ports which max out at a throughput of 600MB/s and limits their speeds. By using this connection, most SSDs will provide read and write speeds of about 500 MB/s. For comparison, a 7200 RPM hard drive manages around 100MB/s depending on age, condition, and level of fragmentation. NVMe SSD on the other hand use multiple PCI-e lanes that allow it to provide throughput speeds as high as 3500MB/s. That’s 35x faster than hard drives and 7x faster than SATA SSDs!
