Storage (disk space) is the basis of any Internet service. ProfitBricks has invested significant time in developing a new generation of storage systems. As with cloud networking, there are two main requirements for storage, security and speed.
Each storage unit at ProfitBricks is comprised of two sub-units that are always located in separate fire zones of the respective data center. Both sub-units work synchronously and each contain the complete database. Each sub-unit then holds the data again redundantly inside the unit. In addition, each sub-unit has a set of SSD hard drives (hard drives without mechanics on RAM basis) as a cache, to optimize the speed of the unit.
For you, this means:
Double redundant storage of your data and (combined with our meshed InfiniBand networking) speeds that are several times higher than with conventional network storage.
