Disk IO is an important metric in web hosting, as it determines the speed at which files can be read & written to disk. This is especially important in database intensive or high traffic applications. This leaderboard allows you to filter by the highest performing web hosting plans based on our IO testing with the dd command (dd if=/dev/zero of=sb-io-test bs=1M count=1k conv=fdatasync), we also provide results for different file sizes if you test your own server using ServerBear.
