Is it possible to migrate my server from HDD to SSD?

The Tilaa platform used to support both HDD and SSD servers. However, we're moving up in the world and therefore we switched to pure SSD servers. You can find out how to upgrade below.

As stated above Tilaa recently made changes to the physical side of the platform by letting our VPS's run on SSD's. Some older customers might still use HDD VPS's and this is still working, however they actually run on SSD Hypvervisors with their IO/PS Limited. 

There are a few things to take into account:

  • Your server will be offline during migration. The time this will take will depend on the size of the disk.
  • There is a possibility your server will have to change to another network segment. This is due to the capacity in the current segment. Your IP address will change if this is the case. If your server is required to move, you will see a confirmation about this beforehand, when upgrading to SSD. You will have to change the IP configuration of the VPS yourself when not using DHCP.
  • The DNS will change. You can change it yourself from the Tilaa dashboard.

If you would like to upgrade your server from HDD to SSD you can use the upgrade button on the status page of your VPS in the dashboard.
