RAM is vital for optimal performance. Data accessed from memory is far faster than drive access times. RAM is often the bottleneck of most applications. With 8 GB RAM included, an abundance of capacity is at your disposal.
When choosing your server, make sure your data storage needs are met. While RAM is an easy upgrade, data storage is not. If you outgrow your server's storage capacity, don't panic. We will keep you abreast of your disk capacity and alert you as part of our managed service.
Without getting too technical, our RAID configurations are for redundancy first and performance second. Data is redundant by the mirror service provided by the RAID controller. If one disk fails, our monitoring system alerts our support department. The drive is replaced via hot swap technology. We simply eject the bad disk and insert its replacement. Data is restored by the RAID controller. Although this does not replace an adequate backup regimine, your server uptime is greatly increased.
Without RAID, complete data loss would result. Requiring a complete OS re-install, your data restored from backup sets, and countless downtime. If you are currently on a server without RAID, you should definitely consider moving to M3. Every server at M3 is built on RAID
Determine your capacity needs and your budget. Selecting the server with the appropriate resouces can save you time and money.
