The Role of RAM in a Dedicated Server

Random Access Memory (RAM) is essentially the simplest of all internal hardware components. This is the case in both home computers and servers alike. Most standard users of IT equipment understand what RAM is and how it can effect a computers speed and reliability.

RAM allows the system to call any information required of it and temporarily store it for use. This ensures data is ready for its required usage immediately. Obviously, there is a lot more to RAM than this simple explanation – a simple search on the internet will gather any further information you require.

So naturally it is safe to assume that more RAM will improve a systems ability to process data – which is true. Of course, it is no good having endless supplies of RAM serving low end processors, as this will severely bottleneck the machine and any subsequent systems it supplies with data. It is because of this that dedicated servers will often come with high end components supplementing the large RAM capacity. It is very unusual to find a dedicated server in today’s market with less than 1GB of RAM; in fact the standard is often 2GB.

Adding RAM to a dedicated server (or a home PC system) will certainly improve the speed and usability of its software applications. But it should be remembered that to get the most out of a dedicated server solution, all hardware components should complement each other. A well-balanced system is the key to technological success in the dedicated server industry.
