Block Storage ProfitBricks

Cloud Block Storage: HDD and SSD

ProfitBricks guarantees customers 50 and 30 IOPS respectively per 1 GB of SSD storage (full random read and write speed). SSD storage can be reserved in memory sizes from 100 GB all the way to 2 TB. A generous 50 IOPs are available per Gbyte; this extends to an upper limit of 15,000 (read) respectively 9,000 IOPS (write). It is even possible to mix the storage space between HDD and SSD – also retrospectively, either using our Data Center Designer (DCD) GUI or directly using the Cloud API.

HDD or SSD? It depends.

For storage space requirements that are subject to greater fluctuations during retrieval and typically require higher random IOPS, customers regularly select SSD storage. However, when it comes to more sequential bandwidth, HDD Cloud Block storage is the better choice. If the customer opts for HDD Cloud Block storage, up to 8 storage devices with capacities between 1 GB and 2 TB per virtual server can be connected.
