At MonoVM we provide you with the underlying facts, assumptions and rules which a computer system has.



Since development of the first hard drive in 1956, which weighted over a thousand kilograms and stored only 5MB of data, storage technology has come a very long way. Modern drives can now store up to 12TB (i.e. 12 million MB) of data and reach up to 150 IOPS (i.e. Input/output Operations Per Second). Over the past few years however, the speed of innovation has slowed down and the rate at which the HDD capacity increases annually has decreased, as we are reaching the maximum possible data density on a single platter. This has led to development of new HDD storage technology such as filling the...

Solid State Drives are a relatively new technology and are way too expensive to implement as an enterprise-level storage option. Hard drives have always been the go-to solution for large-scale storage needs. As the other computer components got better, the hard drives were not able to keep up with their rate of innovation. Researchers were simply running out of space where to put new platters into the standard 3.5-inch form factor. Western Digital has come up with a solution to this problem in a very unexpected way. They decided to fill the Hard Drives with Helium, a gas that has a density...

We have officially launched our SSD VPS servers. For decades, hard disk drives have been used as the main storage devices in the IT field, but with the latest technological advancements, solid state storage has been becoming the next step in performance improvements for both consumer desktop computers and servers alike. Over the past few years, SSDs have become significantly larger in storage size, as well as becoming more affordable, allowing them to be implemented in more complex server configurations. Our VPS servers were previously all based on high-speed enterprise-grade Hard Disk...

What is NVMe

WHAT IS NVMe NVMe(i.e. non-volatile memory express) is a storage protocol that defines a command set and feature set for PCIe-based solid-state drives (SSDs) . NVMe created to accelerate the transfer of data between enterprise and client systems and SSDs over a computer high-speed PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) bus.   NVMe is a new standard Older standard by name AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) was designed for hard drives. Since the introduction of non-volatile storage (e.g. NAND and MRAM), the industry must have developed a software interface that...
