USB3 Pen Drive
Since the advent of solid state devices, things have taken a very good turn for the better. This is why the OS driving the server-on-a-stick is the ubiquitous pen drive. With USB3 speed is not an issue, and host server boots in just 20 seconds.
SSH has been with us for quite a while. It is an interface for monitoring, maintaining and even making file transfers – usually for backup. But traditional file transfers with SSH are inherently slow. Server-on-a-stick comes standard with HPN-SSH which effectively doubles the speed of transfers in most cases
Every server needs a good, stable and resilient file system. ZFS is simply the best filesystem there is offering military grade encryption, folder customization and on the fly filesystem management. Each Virtual machine is compartmentalized and file system tailored for its individual requirements.
