Dedicated Servers Disk Speed



We have service as for file transferring with dedicated servers. But sometimes our server disk read speed looks very slow. What kind of disk using with dedicated servers.Is it possible slow disk read speed?



From what i have experienced if you are using a HDD from them the I/O is really slow. Their SSD’s though seem to be decent.


are other hosting providers HDD disks slow too or just theirs?


If you use RAID it will process the RAID layers upon a first start.
