What is NVMe SSD Storage?
NVMe stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express and is sometimes described in more technical detail as Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCIS). It’s a standard for accessing non-volatile storage (such as an SSD) using a technology known as PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) or simply PCIe. Originally developed to allow high-speed data transfer between computer components and systems, PCIe has been around for over a decade – but it’s only with NVMe that a standard specification for PCIe-based storage has emerged.
SSD comes from Solid State Drive, a modern storage device that doesn’t have any moving parts. It is also known as a solid-state disk for historical reasons, even if it is not actually a disk.
SSD drives are a lot faster than hard disks (HDD) but they used to be very expensive, preventing their widespread use. However, prices have decreased significantly and the gap is relatively small today.
Advantages of NVMe SSD
SSD drives that use NVMe are the fastest storage solutions available for your server today. NVMe guarantees very fast data access, which is especially important for modern multi-core computers. Due to the large bandwidth and built-in parallelism, these drives allow multiple cores to execute write and read operations at the same time, with no I/O wait.
Benchmarks show that NVMe interfaces are twice as fast as the best SAS available and between 4 and 6 times more effective than a conventional SATA port.
Any I/O-bound application benefits from the performance improvements of NVMe.The technology is likely to be of particular interest to dedicated game server hosting clients, who will be able to move data from SSD drives to GPUs and CPUs much more quickly than has ever been possible before, enhancing game performance and maximizing the utilization of expensive processor and graphics hardware.
NVMe is often used to host a caching layer for large databases and can offer speed increases for databases of any size. The same is true for complex web sites and eCommerce stores that require a lot of disk access. NVMe is great for hosting virtual machines.
The result is a massive I/O performance boost. SATA provides maximum bandwidths of around 750Mb/s. A single PCIe lane can move 965Mb/s, and NVMe uses 8 PCIe lanes in parallel, delivering bandwidths of up to 2.8 GB/s.
CloudLinux OS is the leading platform for multitenancy. It improves server stability, density, and security by isolating each tenant and giving them allocated server resources. This creates an environment that feels more like a virtual server than a shared hosting account. By doing so, CloudLinux OS reduces operating costs and increases profitability.
CloudLinux is a Linux based operating system that is essentially a set of kernel modifications to the Linux distribution that implements features to enable system administrators to take fine-grained control of their server’s resource use, isolating users so that problems with one account don’t degrade the service for others. Cloud Linux virtualizes user accounts called LVE ( Lightweight Virtual Environment ). Each LVE is allotted a certain amount of resources. If a particular account receives a sudden large amount of traffic or begins to use a lot of CPU or memory, rather than slowing the entire server and possibly causing a failure, it will slow only that particular LVE.
How does CloudLinux help shared hosting environments?
A shared hosting environment is where thousands of website accounts are hosted on a single server sharing the server resources equally. However, the server admin has limited control over individual website accounts’ server resource usage. If one website account is using an unfair amount of resources (e.g. due to being under a DDoS attack, poorly written script, increase in traffic, etc.), the server would become slow or go down completely, affecting all other customers on the server. In traditional hosting, we can not set a limit for RAM, CPU and other resource usages for a particular website account. Finding problematic websites is again a time-consuming job and fixing such issues sometimes requires suspension of the website accounts creating the problems. This can all lead to a few unsatisfied customers which can adversely affect your business.
Cloud Linux Features –
1- Individual set of Server Resources for each client –
With the LVE ( lightweight virtualized environment ) technology in cloud Linux, each customer’s website account has a separate set of allocated resources such as Memory, CPU, etc.. The LVE technology makes sure that these resources are not shared with any other website accounts.
2- Make your Hosting Environment Stable –
Sudden traffic spikes from other website accounts will never mean downtime for any website account or the server as a whole. Since every website account has its own allocated resources protected keeping the website running though there is a sudden spike in server resource usage from other websites hosted on the server.
3- Make your Server Secure –
CloudLinux’s hardened kernel helps prevent malicious users from attacking other website accounts hosted on the server.
4- Multiple Version of PHP –
Cloud Linux has a feature called PHP selector. It allows end-users to select the specific version of PHP they need. It allows ultimate flexibility by offering all popular versions of PHP, with more than 120 PHP extensions to choose from. CloudLinux packages PHP versions 4.4, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4. The convenient UI lets a customer switch between versions, select the extensions, and adjust PHP settings.
5- Stability of Mysql Database –
MySQL often becomes a major headache for system admins in shared hosting environments. Keeping MySQL stable might be difficult, and customer queries can easily slow everything down. The MySQL Governor Feature of Cloud Linux helps system admins to pinpoint abusers and throttle them in real-time. With support from the latest versions of MySQL and MariaDB, it is a must-have for any shared host. The MySQL Governor feature tracks CPU and disk IO usage for every website account in real-time and throttles MySQL queries by using same-per-user LVE limits.
Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting is virtual mimics dedicated server environments within a shared server. It’s become a popular choice because it is generally lower in cost than dedicated hosting but provides better reliability, security, and performance than shared hosting.
Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a type of hosting suited for people who have outgrown shared hosting. Where multiple sites reside on a single web server with shared hosting and have no guarantee of resources, VPS allows fewer users to share allocated segments of hard drive space, memory, and processor power.
Each user on a VPS server has access to a virtual machine running its own copy of an operating system (OS). This allows customers using VPS hosting to experience similar capabilities and performance to a dedicated server for their sites.
VPS hosting has numerous operating systems on a single server. Each operating system has a certain amount of server resources allocated to it. A single powerful server is divided into multiple VPS servers that run on its own resources. This way, every operating system functions like it is running on a dedicated server. From your perspective, the user’s perspective it certainly seems that way too.
What are the benefits of VPS Hosting?
- Increase Reliability
- Gain Total Control of the Server
- Increase Efficiency
- Cost Savings
A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or unmanaged hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which you lease an entire server not shared with anyone. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as you will have full control over the server(s), including the choice of the operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration is handled by yourself in terms of software, but we provide 24/7 support for hardware related tasks.
Business large and small is faced with a wide range of options for hosting their website, web application, or mail server. The most common option is shared hosting, where a single server’s resources are shared by a number of different websites.
But a company looking for more power and control may need a service provider who offers dedicated hosting. With dedicated hosting, a client rents a server from a dedicated hosting provider and has exclusive use of that server’s resources. The provider works with the client to give them the CPU, RAM, and disk space that they need. The provider builds and maintains the server, eliminating a business’ upfront cost of purchasing their own.
Benefits of Dedicated Hosting
- Server Resources are not Shared
- Reliable and Accessible
- Unique IP address
- More support and security
Our Dedicated Server Locations are:-
In shared hosting, one’s web site is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds.
Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. As cost is extremely low, most websites with moderate traffic levels running standard software are hosted on this type of server. Shared hosting is also widely accepted as the entry-level option as it requires minimum technical knowledge.
PROS: Easy to maintain, cheap
CONS: No root access, limited ability to handle high traffic levels or spikes, site performance can be affected by other sites on the same server
A virtual private server hosting divides a server into virtual servers, where each website is hosted on their own dedicated server, but they’re actually sharing a server with a few different other users. The users may have root access to their own virtual space and better-secure hosting environment with this type of hosting. Websites that need greater control at the server level, but don’t want to invest in a dedicated server.
PROS: Server root access, moderate cost, better server performance than shared hosting.
CONS: Limited ability to handle high traffic levels or spikes, your site performance can still be somewhat affected by other sites on the server.
A dedicated server offers the maximum control over the web server your website is stored on – You exclusively rent an entire server. Your website(s) is the only website stored on the server.
PROS: Powerful server performance and total server customization.
CONS: With great power comes a greater price. Dedicated servers are very expensive and it’s only recommended to those who need maximum control and better server performance.
