We have been testing faster hardware over the past few months and are just about ready to migrate current clients over.
New hardware features: -- 3.2GHz CPU cores vs current 2.4GHz. -- NVMe drives vs current SSD drives -- Even faster memory (RAM)
Our new storage drives are about 2x faster sequential and about 1.5x random. RAM also is a bit faster but most of the performance improvements you will see is actually from the CPU upgrade, as there's been a lot of demand for even higher single threaded CPU performance. All our drives continue to have remote continuous replication and daily snapshots.
This is in line with our pledge to always deliver the latest hardware. This marks the 4th round of hardware upgrades at no extra cost to clients since the launch of StackLinux in 2012. Thanks for hosting with StackLinux, we truly appreciate your business and our working relationship.
