Insanely Fast NVMe Servers | Hostirian

  • Slow IOPs? What would insanely fast IOPS mean to you in terms of MySQL queries and database management?
  • Would outperforming HDD and SSD set you apart from your competition?
  • If you’re looking to resell servers, why not capture a high end market as part of your services?

SSD outperformed HDD because the latency or response time of this storage media improved drastically over mechanical drives by as much a thousand times. One thing HDD and SSD have in common is the SATA interface. SATA was developed with mechanical hard drives in mind, and can’t match PCIe speeds. NVMe servers eliminate that issue.

Putting the speed of NVMe into perspective

When establishing a direct connection to PCIe, NVMe outperforms a high performance SSD by 6 times. While the Samsung 860 Pro SATA SSD can read up to 560MB/s, the Samsung 960 NVMe can read up to 3,200MB/s. This equates to server performance that the user can see and feel.

If storage devices were cars, in the amount of time it would take for a 15K HDD to travel the length of a 100-meter dash, a NAND Flash SSD could traverse the length of a marathon (26.2 miles). NVMe could travel from New York to Los Angeles and back in the same amount of time.

A Quick Comparison

Sequential read:

  • WD Black Edition 7,200rpm (215MB/s)
  • Samsung 860 Pro SSD (560MB/s)
  • Samsung 960 NVMe (3,200MB/s)

Sequential write

  • WD Black Edition 7,200rpm (215MB/s)
  • Samsung 860 Pro SSD (530MB/s)
  • Samsung 960 NVMe (1,900MB/s)

Random read IOPS

  • WD Black Edition 7,200rpm (84)
  • Samsung 860 Pro SSD (100,000)
  • Samsung 960 NVMe (380,000)

Random write IOPS

  • WD Black Edition 7,200rpm (207)
  • Samsung 860 Pro SSD (90,000)
  • Samsung 960 NVMe (360,000)

Don’t be fooled by NVMe modules that run in SATA mode.

The Non-Volatile Memory Express technology on our servers takes advantage of PCIe’s bandwidth to create incredibly fast SSDs that blast SATA-based drives out of the water, fully exploiting the performance of high-end SSDs.
NVMe modules like the 960 EVO are engineered to take advantage of the unique properties of pipeline-rich, random access, memory-based storage. NVMe also reflects improvements in methods to lower data latency.

Why settle for slow servers?

Dictionaries define “slow” as SCSI, SAS, PATA and SATA. Why? These are protocols that date back decades! They were based on hard drives that spun like tops – very mechanical in nature, thus prone to all sorts of failures and limitations based on rotation speeds and read/write heads.

NVMe reduces I/O overhead

NVMe doesn’t just take advantage of lower data latency, it reduces I/O overhead, giving it the ability to process multiple long command queues. It only needs a single message for 4KB transfers compared to two, which increases server speed when processing tons of concurrent disk I/O requests.

NVMe is a performance based solution

Traditional storage requires an ACHI (SATA) or SAS controller to connect mechanical hard disks to the PCIe bus, but NVMe eliminates that bridge and instead makes a direct connection.
SSD was a performance based solution because the latency or response time of the storage media improved drastically over mechanical drives, by as much a thousand times. Conversely, the bottleneck with under-performing NVMe is the SATA interface. When establishing a direct connection to PCIe, NVMe outperforms regulare SSD by 6 times.

Our NVMe servers address SATA mode inefficiencies

Our NVMe servers address those inefficiencies, capitalizing on the low latency and parallelism of PCI Express SSDs, – complementing the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications.
