We have been talking much about our new Cloud server with SSD and its performance. Today, we want to make a comparison and benchmark on the cloud servers with spinning drives SSDs.
Vastspace SSD Cloud Server nodes use only enterprise SSD drives ensuring fast and consistent command response times as well as protect data loss and corruption.
We have done the read & write tests for our Cloud SSD VPS against a popular SSD VPS before. Today, we are carrying out a test on 2 identical Cloud servers with SSD and Raid 10 15,000 rpm SAS drives respectively.
The test Cloud Servers comes with 2 CPU core, 2Gb memory and 20Gb of disk space.
Both test servers are installed with CentOS 6.5 x64 and hosted in Vastspace Singapore Data Center.
The result is obvious that SSD Cloud server beat the Cloud server with spinning drives hands down, despite the Raid 10 15K rpm SAS drives is still slower in terms of write speed compares to the solid-state drives.
