Storm SSD Redefining High Performance
Filed under: News & Features

Join with us to celebrate what is sure to be one of the year’s most anticipated developments in High Performance Cloud Hosting: the unveiling of Storm SSD, by Storm On Demand. Having set the industry benchmark for I/O speeds recently with Storm 96GB, our engineers have done it again, eclipsing our previous record with the inclusion of Solid State technology!

Benefits of Storm SSD:

  • Increased power, speed and performance
  • Full redundancy
  • Reduced I/O queues
  • Unrivaled database performance
  • High I/O performance, eliminating starved CPU states
  • Eliminate “bottleneck” effect

Storm SSD is poised to open a world of innovation in the hosting market that has been previously untapped. In a recent benchmarking test, Storm SSD 12GB performed 4K Sequential Writes at 225,000 IOPS. By contrast, Storm’s non-SSD 8GB instance performed the test at 15,000 IOPS with Amazon EC2 m1.large clocking in at 4,900. We are excited to push the boundaries of what people have come to expect from Cloud hosting with one of the industries first products designed to use the lowest possible server load and maximize your performance
