Speed Comparison of SSD and NVme on Contabo VPS

in vps •  2 months ago 

Contabo VPS has offered options of choosing SSD and NVme. You can choose 100GB NVme or 400GB normal SSD.

Using dd command to test writing/reading speed on 1GB file for NVme:

dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 2.22976 s, 482 MB/s

Using dd to test reading/writing speed on 1GB file on SSD:

dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 7.27682 s, 148 MB/s

So, a quick result: the performance of a NVme disk on contabo server is roughly three times faster than a normal SSD.
