VDS/VPS on NVMe drives

Dear customers!

We are glad to inform you that we updated our platform in the location Ukraine and now VPS/VDS virtual server services are provided on NVMe drives!

What does it mean?

Using NVMe drives allows you to get better performance compared to SATA SSD drives, and many times compared to regular hard drives. These storage media are great for projects where you need faster drive speeds and require shorter read and write times to the medium.

But that's not all! Now you can order a remote desktop (RDP) on NVMe as well as a VPS/VDS server on NVMe drive. All our virtual server services in Ukraine now exclusively on NVMe disks.

NVMe - what is it?

NVMe is the latest and greatest storage interface for computers and servers, offering much faster read and write speeds than older interfaces. But using NVMe disks does not always allow you to get multiple performance gains.

What are NVMe drives?

NVMe drives are much faster than the SATA drives we're already accustomed to.
To ensure high bandwidth and low latency, the NVMe protocol provides access to flash memory over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus that supports tens of thousands of parallel instruction queues and is therefore much faster than hard disk drives and traditional all-flash architectures, which are limited to a single instruction queue. NVMe drives can use 4 PCIe lanes, which means a theoretical maximum speed of 3.9 Gbps (3,940 Mbps). Meanwhile, the read and write speed of one of the fastest SATA SSDs is about 560MB/s.

NVMe drives come in a variety of form factors. The most common is M.2 in the form of a compact board for plugging into a Mini PCie. They are 12mm, 16mm, 22mm, 30mm wide and can be 16mm, 26mm, 30mm, 38mm, 42mm, 60mm, 80mm or 110mm long. These drives are thin enough to sit flat on your motherboard, so they're perfect for small form factor computers and laptops. You can also find drive options with PCIe x4 connectivity for server solutions.

The NVMe specification allows you to take advantage of nonvolatile memory in all types of computing environments. In addition, it is future-proof and can be extended to work with permanent memory technologies not yet invented.
