Want a real fast dedicated server? Well look no further. You have found them, or at least a list of really fast dedicated servers that can meet your needs.
The first list of hosting providers all offer a fast dedicated server made with Intel XEON CPUS. These machines are dual Xeon server platforms. With between 1 and 16 GB or RAM, depending on your needs some of them come with hardware RAID, freeing up more of your dual Xeon server s time to concentrate on serving pages and crunching data.
Dual Xeon dedicated server hardware is expensive; however the machines make for a very fast dedicated server. IF you have any resource intensive applications or are running a database server, these machines are very fast, especially if you load them up with RAM and fast hard drives.
There are several ways to increase the speed of a dual Xeon server, the first being adding more RAM, if you are currently hosting or looking for a fast dedicated server solution you can ask the hosting company to add more RAM, usually an option that you can select at the time you order your server . If you did not load up on RAM when you first purchased your fast server, you can just request a RAM upgrade and they should be able to do it for you fairly quickly. Read more about this here.
A really fast dedicated server can get more performance out of regular hard drives by utilizing a hardware RAID solution. By choosing either RAID 0 or RAID 5 you can achieve fast read and write times on your dual Xeon server. Another way is by switching to 15,000 rpm SCSI hard drives, they are more expensive, do not have the storage capacity of SATA drives but are much faster. More on this topic here
