NVMe is a way of packaging a Solid State Drive (SSD) memory architecturally closer to the controller chip. It means that disk performance is substantially improved over standard SSD drives. Disk performance is a very important factor of website performance - with many web applications requiring hundreds of disk reads per page load. Even very small improvements in disk performance can accumulate to a big difference in page loading time.
At Stablepoint, we are in the process of upgrading and migrating all servers to use the latest NVMe technology where our local providers support this hardware. At the moment, we are only able to support NVMe in our London, Frankfurt, New York and Singapore locations. All other locations use (still very fast) SSD drives.
