Can you place one petabyte of data into a single unit of a rack? Apparently, Intel can.
As the usage of SSDs is growing every day, still a lot of living data on the cloud is stored in the spinning drives, which is available in larger capacities with lower price, Intel is trying to change that with a new form factor for SSDs that could push server capacities into the petabyte range and it’s called the “Ruler” form factor.
Clearly, Intel’s new SSDs in the Ruler form factor is shaped like a ruler. As you know a hard drive (HDD) needs to make room for the spinning platters and other mechanical components which Solid State Drives (SSD) don’t. So Intel built the Ruler SSDs to literally fit in 1 unit server rack!
Intel is being very conservative about offering specifics on capacity and interface but it says that slotting a Ruler SSD in your server rack can get you 1 petabyte of space for engaging a single unit! It’s a very good trade for a single rack, And it sounds better when you thinking to do that with 10TB hard drives would require 4 unit server rack with 100 drive slots!
Ruler SSDs will be available with standard 3D NAND storage or Intel’s new “Optane” memory technology for improved speeds and efficiency.
Intel’s new ruler SSDs can be a significant improvement when it comes to space and power efficiency and Intel hopes that the new SSD form factor can encourage data center operators to upgrade to what is sure to be a more expensive hardware.
Intel has not actually released any pricing or availability details yet, All we know is that the new drives are rolling out in the near future.
HugeServer now offers you the latest in virtualization technology called CloudLinux to address common issues that cause instability and downtime when hosting multiple websites on a server.
With this new operating system you can crash proof your servers.
There were always 2 things that made hosting multiple websites on a server a pain.
- One was leaving vast amounts of idle resources to guard against a single tenant from over-utilizing the shared resources. You always have to prepare for the worst – and leave idle resources sitting and waiting for something that may or may not happen. Very inefficient.
- The other pain was keeping one website from causing problems and eating up server resources causing it to slow or worse, shutting down the server. Resources can be drained by any number of problems like a traffic spike, a bug in the website code from one tenant or a hacker attack.
Those days are over. Now we offer CloudLinux
CloudLinux uses Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology to isolate resources on the server. It prevents individual websites from using too many resources and slowing down other sites, provides better security, and protects servers from issues that drain resources. The technology provides better management of server populations and improves stability and can allow you to host twice as many accounts on one server. Not only that, CloudLinux is easy to deploy and manage since it is:
- Based on RedHat EL 5.x / RedHat EL 6.x and interchangeable with CentOS 5.x / Centos 6.x which means no learning curve
- Works with all major control panels including cPanel and Plesk
- Compatible with major hosting technologies like Ksplice and R1Soft Backup
- Transparent to both the administrator and end user and requires virtually no overhead
