Storage Upgrade: Lightning-Fast Performance

Boosting Performance: Seamless Storage Upgrade at Athorio!

At Athorio, we're always striving to offer the best to our users. We understand the importance of speed and reliability, especially when it comes to storage. That's why we're excited to share the news of our recent storage upgradeโ€”accomplished without a moment's interruption to our running machines.

From Consumer NVMe to Elite U.2 Storage

While our previous storage, the WD Blue SN550 NVMe, served us well, we noticed occasional latency spikes during write operations, especially when its SLC cache was exhausted. These spikes could cause write speeds to plummet to as low as 2 MB/s. This wasn't in line with our commitment to ensuring optimal performance for our users.

Understanding the need for a change, we transitioned to the state-of-the-art KINGSTON DC1500M U.2. This datacenter-grade storage is designed for high-resilience and sustained performance, drastically reducing storage access latency.


Here's why we chose the KINGSTON DC1500M U.2:

  • Stable Performance: Even under intense loads, this storage solution guarantees stable latency and bandwidth, ensuring your operations run smoothly.
  • Datacenter Grade: Built for the most demanding tasks, it offers robustness and longevity, a perfect fit for Athorio's cloud services.
  • No More Latency Spikes: Say goodbye to dramatic drops in write speed. With the U.2 storage, your data processes consistently, regardless of the load.

A Promise of Excellence

Our move to U.2 storage is more than just an upgrade; it's a testament to our promise. We prioritize our users' experience above all. This change ensures that our power users, too, can expect nothing short of excellence in terms of consistent latency and bandwidth, even under high workloads.

A big shout-out to our technical team, whose expertise and dedication made this seamless transition possible. And, as always, a heartfelt thank you to our user community for their unwavering trust and support.

Here's to faster, smoother, and more reliable storage solutions with Athorio!
