Without getting into outlandish supercomputer and GPU territory, the fastest single standard server will be something like a Dell R820 - up to 4 x E5 processors, 1.5TB of RAM and 16 drive bay slots in a 2U chassis. If you want density as well, then a blade chassis will give up to 32 E5's in 10U, so 128 CPU per rack. That's not bad for a cloud, although you will need a SAN to go with it.

I'm sure HP and IBM will have their equivalents as well.

I guess a Xeon equipped, 4GB of RAM, SSD device will be the fastest on the earth.

depends what sort of Xeon processor do you use, I prefer twin quad core 2.5Ghz like on HP SE1102 or twin dual core xeon 3.0Ghz like on Dell PowerEdge 1950

I think Dell R310 good. Dell PowerEdge Servers are good. Supermicro also not bad.

We use Dell, SuperMicro and Fujitsu.

Dell as usual works amazing, very stable but most expensive.
Fujitsu is an nice surprise, price is better then with Dell, but they are also very stable and functional.
SuperMicro, they are just good. We had most issues with them, maybe because we use them the most...

Anyway, if you ask me which one of those 3 I would choose. I'm not sure.
All of them give some value. See what you need and what budget you have.

Regarding "speed" of some server. It all depends from config you take. You can't go wrong with Intel Xenon series, Dual processor a lot of RAM and HDD depends on use. RAID-10 if you use SATA, but if you want amazing speed there is SSD.


I would say that speed of your server will mostly depend on your budget, not on hardware supplier

Supermicro Intel Xeon. Like to custom build my own hardware and pick the parts I need.

Speaking about the SSD drives, I should say that the read/write speed of SSD-drives is much higher than on ordinary SATA or SAS drives.
Each VPS runs 30-40 thousands IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) operations. This is much more than the usual 150 IOPS operations on SATA or SAS drives.
This will let your VPS server to handle the database, web server, mail and other application queries used by your site more quickly.

We tested the speed of SATA and SSD drives and here are the results.

1) Disk system WEBSERVER (Apache 2.2.x) - see the results in attachment 1

2) Disk system DATABASE SERVER - see the results in attachment 2
