dmb каза:Is there a way to compensate the lack of RAM? It’s been always a main component because of the slow hard disk. That is true for the home PCs too. The software sees that and it tries to use the RAM more and more often because it is faster than the hard disk. That’s done by Apache and muscle. So if the RAM gets a cut when the SSDs are faster at that moment, will this make the servers slower than before? I’m using 4GB RAM now and if I use 2GB my server will be not fast enough to handle my needs even if it has SSD disks.
It is possible that some providers are overselling a lot, but Delta are offering high-quality services. using VPS. The new service with the SSD drives is very good too. I’m sure about that. My experience with them is excellent!.
The prices are getting lower and lower especially the prices of RAM. In 2010 a dedicated server with 2GB ram which I used cost 119 dollars, after that they’ve added another 2 gigabytes of RAM for free. There was a thread in 2011 about that and in 2013 there was an offer for 119 dollar. In exchange you will use 16 GB RAM i7 (8 threads) 2 x 500GB hard drives. That was offered by iWeb. I’m a subscriber of their newsletter and I’m always in touch with the promotions. Of course there is a catch! The hard disks you will use are 7200rpm. The server will cost a lot more if it uses SSD disks may be the disks are more expensive than the whole server.
Since when you are spending over 100 dollars for a VPS? Some of the international provides including the US ones and the one you are talking about increased the RAM included in their VPS packages and the Dedicated servers.*
If it is not a secret for what are you using that 4 gigabytes? What is your web server and what is its configuration. Predpriemach.com is using 6 times less CPU since I remove Apache and started to use Nginx. Since I started to use MPM (first I used worker than Event) the RAM it is using is a few hundred megabytes. When I used apache without any optimizations it opened a process for every user that visited the forum. The used ram was 1,5 GB. Now when I use Nginx the site can use VPS. It uses almost no RAM. Only the PHP with its caching. You can hire someone to configure and optimize your server and you will find that a smaller VPS will suit your needs. The other option is to get a managed VPS from a company that offers them. Ask them for their optimized variations of the server configuration.
