Greatresponder.com on Oct. 06, 2012: A new line of virtual private servers featuring solid state drive storage technology has been announced by web hosting provider GeekStorage on Monday October 1, 2012 is an official statement. This new service would feature the most reliable storage technology to provide the best experience of cloud hosting to its customers.
This move has been made a few months after GeekStorage wen hosting opened a new office in Norman, Oklahoma. As compared to disk-based systems, SSD storage provides quicker loading and database queries due to higher I/O rates and access times; this results in the sustainable business growth by introduction of reliable data storage technology. Many web hosting companies have introduced SSD storage technology during last six months; few of them are ElasticHosts, Cloud Provider USA, and others.
In a statement Mr. Matt Eli, CEO of GeekStorage web hosting company said, “We have been looking forward to launching these new SSD-based VPS and have been testing their performance for the last couple of months. The resource bottleneck with VPS hosting has been the I/O throughput limitations when dealing with typical SATA and SAS hard drives. With the launch of these new VPS featuring Samsung 830 SSD’s in RAID 10, our customers will be able to benefit by not being constrained by the I/O limitations of regular hard drives. We’re talking 500 percent more IOPS than regular hard drives.”
Web hosting provider GeekStorage is expecting the sales of its new SSD VPS to perform equally well as doing its regular SAS-based VPS hosting service; however, the price will make a difference. The price of GeekStorage’s SSD VPS plan is $15/month. The plan includes one dedicated IP address, bandwidth of 400 GB, RAM of 512 MB and space of 12 GB.
The customers can choose from one of the popular control panels like Webmin, Plesk, or cPanel. The price of premium management with server monitoring and response is $15/month, the price of basic management is $10/month, and the community support is free.
