HDD or NVMe SSD

Is the hard disk type of this VPS really not HDD?

Dear client,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Don't worry! We have prepared your VPS from NVME. Since it is a virtual server it is not possible to check it from your end.
If it is a normal PC it is possible to check from your end whether it is a hard disk or NVME.
We hope you will be able to understand this matter.

    try in powershell

    Get-PhysicalDisk | Select * 
    
  • The ATA/SATA/SAS type is HDD disks

  • Test the file extraction process, compress large files, and watch disk speed in Windows or your RDP.

    So the answer is HDD?

  • conerficonerfi Member

    test?

    It is a virtual disk, it makes no difference how it is displayed. You need to check the read/write speed and IOPS.

  • To ensure. Test the file extraction process, compress large files, and watch i/o disk speed in Windows or your RDP.

    No, you can't really tell since it's a VPS. KVM (probably) can display a SATA or SCSI device while the qcow (virtual disk) can be stored on NVME. best indication is the performance (and even that is not a guarantee if it's slow. NVME has significant performance degration depending on how full disks are
