This is my situation...
Cloud Hosting - - disk I/O for my wordpress website (aka a database-driven website) is abysmal. But what's good about it is, there's no single point of failure, so very minimal risk of downtime.
So I thought I would so, local storage instead of redundant SAN offered in the cloud in order to raise performance. But then gain, this brings in the single point of failure thing (host doesn't offer RAID for local storage in cloud) + risk of data loss.
As you all know, Dedicated physical server again has a single point of failure. So, what do you think I should do? Any ideas are welcome.
EDIT: I meant, what should I do for disk performance in Cloud Hosting, without risking data loss?
