High-Performance VPS is relatively a new web hosting term in the industry, We named it as high-performance is to differentiate them from the standard VPS.
They have more RAM, better CPU priority and higher disk read and write output. Especially good for the applications rely on database read and write a lot.
While it is competitive in the web hosting market, similar to VPS, its price is cheaper. A lot of the hosting providers tend to host more guest machines than before.
As such, it only makes sense to introduce high-performance VPS to guarantee its performance. In most cases, the performance of our High-performance VPS outperforms the dedicated server with hard drives especially the IO segment.
All of our high-performance VPS have RAID 10 SSD and not 4 but 8 units write-intensive SSD minimum. In the high-performance VPS, the number of guest machine is limited by its guaranteed performance. Because of this reason, IOPS is high.
If you are looking at the dollars per Gigabyte, the conventional spinning hard drives are definitely cheaper. For performance, high chance the VPS will take the lead.
Another big advantage of these VPS is the backup snapshot. The backup snapshot works on 10 GbE network internally is really fast. It is taking less than 15 minutes to do a full backup of a 200Gb guest machine.
Yes, a full backup is not an incremental backup. We can call it a stateful backup. Next time when you want a dedicated server, you might want to check out the full-managed high-performance VPS.
