Our servers are based in Sydney, Australia and we only use the latest SuperMicro and Dell servers to power our cloud. Other key features and information on our servers:
- Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2 2.6GHZ CPUs with 6 cores
- Quad Channel DDR Memory
- Redundant Platinum 80 plus power supplies
- 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Connections
- Intel DC Enterprise SSD Drives
We also only use SSD storage, because traditional spinning hard drives struggle to keep up with the demanding varying work loads of public cloud infrastructure. All our VM storage is replicated across multiple storage nodes. We lose a node, we don’t lose your data.
Storage is the single most important factor when it comes to cloud performance. CPUs and RAM have predictable performance, but storage performance can vary greatly based on work load types.
