The Advantages of Local NVMe SSDs

If performance is not enough for high demanding applications like databases or others, local NVMe SSDs are the perfect match for fast I/O. Local NVMe SSDs are available in every zone in the NETWAYS Cloud.

Easy to use

Boost your performance by simply choosing local NVMe 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.

Easy Use Icon

High Bandwidth

Enable faster read and write speeds with local NVMe SSDs. Get faster boot times, quicker application responsiveness, and improved overall system performance.

Use-Case Scenarios

Relational Databases

Applications that rely on relational database management systems (RDBMS) like MySQL, PostgreSQL or MariaDB often require high-speed storage to handle transactional workloads efficiently. These databases demand low latency and high I/O throughput for read and write operations.

Image Caching

E-commerce websites often deal with a large number of product images to provide appealing and informative product listings. To ensure fast loading times and an excellent user experience, these sites can utilize local NVMe SSDs for temporary storage.

Secure and safe data

Operating Systems

Backups and Snapshots

Snapshots and backups create point-in-time copies of your data, ensuring that your critical information is protected from accidental deletions, data corruption, or hardware failures.

Usage Examples

Create Your Instance using a Command Line Interface (CLI), the REST-API, or our Webinterface.

OpenStack CLI

Use the OpenStack CLI command to create a new instance with given flavor. The disk is going to be provisioned on the target hypervisor on its NVMe SSD Storage.

openstack server create --image 'Ubuntu Jammy 22.04 LTS' 
--flavor s1.medium --network vpcnetwork myinstance


The provided REST-API allows you to create an OpenStack instance. There are also libraries for the most popular programming languages available.

curl -X POST https://cloud.netways.de:8774/v2.1/servers 
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" 
    -H "X-Auth-Token: $TOKEN" 
    -d '{
        "server": {
            "name": "'myinstance'",
            "flavorRef": "'$FLAVOR_ID'",
            "imageRef": "'$IMAGE_ID'",
            "networks": [
                    "uuid": "'$NETWORK_ID'"


Create your Cloud Server using the NETWAYS Web Services.

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.
