Difference in disks

SAS are slow compared to SSD, but still like 3x faster than SATA, when it comes to IOPS

I have a question about the disks used on the soyoustart essential dedicated servers.

I am currently using this server: http://www.soyoustart.com/ca/en/offers/e3-ssd-3.xml (2 of them)

I am looking to upgrade to this (Buying a new server): http://www.soyoustart.com/ca/en/offers/sys-ip-5-s.xml

I run minecraft servers on these dedicated servers, so disks are important to me about speed and reliability.

The SATA disks are too slow, SSDs are amazing and love using them, but lack in size. I'm curious on what the SAS disk is. What is its speed compared to an SSD and what exactly are they? thanks
