NVMe vs double sized SATA-SSD
If you could choose between 960GB Datacenter NVMe and 1.92 TB Datacenter SATA SSD, which one would you pick?
I want to use it for a Cloudron instance with Mastodon, Nextcloud and a few "lower" apps like pastebin, url-shortener and maybe a private wordpress blog. I don't have any information regarding those SSD drives as the provider only states "datacenter NVMe" and "datacenter SATA SSD".
If the SATA would slow down everything noticeably, I would pick the smaller NVMe. But just in case there isn't any noticeable slow down, I'd go with SATA as its double the size.
Thanks for your input on this.
960GB Datacenter NVMe
As soon as you have access to the server you can check the hardware what this really means
Now to your question.
This can not be answered as simple as it is, there are missing information.
Like do you expect high volume of traffic (read/write) on the Nextcloud? Same with the Blog and Mastadon.
How many Users will use the Nextcloud with what quota? (5x Users with each 50GB?)
But since I read:
and maybe a private wordpress blog
This sounds more like a personal / close friends and family setup.
In this case I would go for the SATA SSD. They are still SSDs with ~600 MBps which should be plenty.
But please share some more details about the intended use.
@BrutalBirdie Thanks for your reply. I will use the whole server just for myself. One Nextcloud user, one Mastodon user, etc
I will probably move my own blog over to the server and cancel my webhosting plan.
I am just not sure how much storage I will need and in case I will not see a difference in speed, I should probably go with the bigger storage
