    yeah pretty sure it's fine.. but that Sandisk SSD is pretty old..

    Guess something to keep an eye on with reliablesite.net's 64GB SSD offering :)

    Update: i've completed the site migration over to this new server. After having initial problem with the low performance of 64GB SSD, I have asked them to swapped with 128GB SSD. And not happy with it, I asked them to give me the 256GB.
    They are easy to work with and do everything I requested.

    So I end up having 2x256GB raid 1 with 32GB ram.
    Ping to the new server from my location is now <15ms compared to 25ms of the old server. This is one of the reason I want to get a new server in the NYC area.

    Will continue to monitor this and update on my experience.

    Has there been much of a price increase by going from 64gb to 256gb drives?

    Yes, you pay $10 increase for each next step up. so from 64 to 256 is $40 extra/month.

    ah from my calculations, that would still end up cheaper than your old Rackspace cloud server :)

    $147/month. $100/month cheaper.

    The site is available at https://www.quantnet.com
    See if it loads fast for you. I think the DNS has updated globally for that domain.

    oh was about to say http:// for your domain doesn't seem to be redirecting to https:// ?

    Hey guys! Sorry for the late response here.

    The 64 GB SSD is an entry level SSD, and for the size, the speed won't matter much. As mentioned by others, the SSD is rated at 7K IOPS read and 2K IOPS write. A typical spinning disk is about 120 IOPS R/W, which is still a small fraction.

    If you have any questions, issues, concerns I can be reached directly at [email protected].

    thanks for chiming in @RSNET-Radic

    Not sure what your cost pricing is on the 64GB Sandisk, but going by retail pricing, maybe a better value for performance to price ratio and for disk capacity to jump to 128GB Crucial M550 SSD instead ?

    They just announce FTP backup feature. Is this a good deal @eva2000 ? What kind of additional info should I learn more about it?

    We are proud to announce that we now offer RAID-protected FTP backup storage. With it you can add another layer of protection for your data. Storage is available for new and existing dedicated servers, and starts at $0.03/GB.

    Our storage servers are setup on the same private network as your servers, to further secure data by preventing access from the public internet. Transferring data between your dedicated server and our backup server does not count toward your bandwidth allocation. Each dedicated server receives a 1 Gbps private uplink for fast and secure data transfers.

    For more information about our backup services or to add backup services to your account, please contact [email protected].

    @Andy let me know if you have any specific questions. We're going to be putting together some how-to articles in the coming weeks on how to automate your own backups with our system.

    That would be cool.
    I got an email back from RSNET about the pricing (100 GB Space - $5.00/mo). What I would be most interested in as a potential customer are the answers or instruction how to
    1) I use Xenforo and have an addon that create daily backup of the database and files. These backup stay in a private folder in the dedicated server. If I want to store to the FTP backup server, can I back up to them directly?

    I suspect it will require an additional cron job that ftp the backup to that backup server?
    2) I have a Synology NAS at home and I would like to be able to sync the data on the ftp server to the NAS.

    Andy,

    1. Yes, you will need to have an extra cron job to push that backup to the FTP server. Here is a quick way to do it: scripting - cron jobs to upload a file via FTP - Stack Overflow

    2. Not sure if your NAS has the ability to push/pull files via FTP, so I can't make recommendations there.

    Are you still using RS to host your website? Same server?
