When choosing a VPS, I saw this SCSI in their hosting features list, what is it? how can it compare with SSD, which one is better? why?

SCSI is (if I remember correctly) disk connection port like SATA just little bit older (10+yrs) and it is slower then SSD.

SCSI is an interface commonly associated with SAS hard drives. SAS drives are slower than SSDs.
Order of speed (lowest to highest):
SATA Drives.
SAS Drives.
SSD.

Go for SSDs whenever possible.

You're absolutely right. I would just like to add that SAS and SATA drives can run up to 15GBP depending on the controller of the server., This would make these drives almost as fast as an SSD if not faster. I don't have the benchmark results but I'm sure you can Google it.

Also on a side note ; SSD drives are built differently than SAS and SATA, which can sometimes cause them to fail a lot faster than a SATA or SAS.

SCSI in 2017 :eek:hmy:

It's old and outdated technology which will work good for backup systems etc, but for production hosting environment just no.
