Boost Your Performance. Scale To The Max.

Local SSDs

The Advantages of Local SSDs

When a centralised storage is not enough for high performance applications like databases or highly frequented websites, local SSDs are the perfect match for fast I/O. Local SSDs are available in every zone in the NETWAYS Cloud.

Hosted, managed and made with love in Germany.


Boost your performance by simply choosing local SSDs in our OpenStack backend and scale your apps to any desired level – or to the maximum.

Low Latency

NVMe SSDs have lower latency than hard disk drives, meaning data can be accessed quicker. Expect faster application response times and user experiences.

What Is Nice To Know

Why to use SSD in my applications?
SSDs are much faster than HDDs in terms of read and write speeds. This means faster boot times, faster application loading, and faster file transfers. This is because SSDs have no moving parts and data is accessed electronically, whereas HDDs have spinning disks and data is accessed using a mechanical arm.
How much faster is a SSD compared to standard HDD?
The speed of a solid-state drive (SSD) compared to a standard hard disk drive (HDD) depends on several factors, such as the capacity of the drives, the interface used to connect them to the computer, and the specific benchmarks being used to test their performance.

In general, SSDs are much faster than HDDs in terms of read and write speeds. The exact speed difference depends on the specific models being compared, but SSDs can be up to 10 times faster than HDDs in terms of data transfer rates. This means that tasks such as booting up a computer, opening large files, and launching applications can be completed much faster with an SSD compared to a standard disk.

It’s worth noting that the speed difference between SSDs and HDDs is most noticeable when dealing with large files or performing tasks that require a lot of data access. For tasks that are less data-intensive, such as browsing the web or using word processing software, the speed difference may be less noticeable.

How durable is a SDD over time?
Solid-state drives (SSDs) are generally more durable than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) because they have no moving parts that can wear out or be damaged. However, like any electronic device, SSDs can still fail over time.

The durability of an SSD depends on several factors, such as the quality of the components used in the drive, the amount of data written to the drive over time, and the conditions under which the drive is used. Most SSD manufacturers provide a rating for the total amount of data that can be written to the drive before it is likely to fail, known as the drive’s endurance rating. This rating is typically expressed in terabytes written (TBW) or drive writes per day (DWPD), and can vary depending on the specific model and capacity of the drive.

In general, SSDs are expected to last longer than HDDs, with some estimates suggesting that an SSD could last up to 10 times longer than an HDD under similar conditions. However, this is just a rough estimate, and the actual lifespan of an SSD can vary widely depending on the factors mentioned above.

It’s also worth noting that while SSDs are generally more durable than HDDs, they can still fail unexpectedly, so it’s important to always keep regular backups of your data, regardless of the type of drive you’re using.
