Better drives for Hybrid servers


I love KH

As we all know, KnownHost offer both top notch service and hardware, however, I think that servers that host hybrid accounts should be using a SCSI/SAS RAID10 config instead of the SATA RAID10 that is currently being used in all servers of KnownHost. Why? Well, people who hosts their sites on a hybrid server usually run server intensive applications (no problem with this because servers has powerful processors and a lot of RAM) but also drive intensive applications i.e. busy forums that constanly reads and writes to the disk for the database.

Using SCSI/SAS drives on hybrid servers will give us a better IO performance.

Just a suggestion :)

Thank you,

At this time we do not plan to switch from SATA drives. Do you experience I/O problems with your Hybrid? If so, please PM me details so I can investigate what might be going on.
