What is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than standard RAM and where could you get it?
RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run extremely heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to make certain that there will not be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we discover that you're not using the whole capacity of the server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You are able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
