What's Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than ordinary RAM and where can you get it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all the information must be read so that you can access particular info. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical server. When using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be for your use at all times and will not be allotted to other customers even when it is not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server
we offer you is guaranteed and will be available constantly even if you do not use it all for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful website hosting solution for your sites and applications and you acquire one of the dedicated servers
that we provide, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks thoroughly alongside all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so if you get one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality web server that'll guarantee excellent functionality for your websites. Even if you don't use the full capacity of the web server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
