Hyperscale Servers provide breakthrough performance for big data and web scale architectures, with 100% Flash storage that maximizes performance of distributed workloads. Best of all, Hyperscale instances can be deployed and administered using our standard cloud management functions, and you can size them to any combination of compute and storage.
Ideal for solutions running Hadoop, MongoDB, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server
and other database applications.
Databases are disk-intensive applications. The Flash storage of our Hyperscale servers means you can expect at least 15,000 IOPS to turbo-charge your Cassandra, Mongo, Redis, or other database.
Minimize IT costs by automating and coordinating maintenance activities with scheduled tasks for your Hyperscale servers, turning off developer machines over the weekend, or automatically deleting or archiving servers at the end of a project.
Hyperscale's anti-affinity policies make it possible to build and balance additional workloads on separate physical hosts to achieve high availability.
Whether your application is running a document store (i.e. NoSQL) or a relational SQL database, you want a highly-performant server. Hyperscale instances are ideal for Cassandra, Couchbase, Redis, SQL Server, Riak, MongoDB, MySQL, CouchDB, and more.
When ingesting large amounts of data, it's important you're able to store and access it efficiently. Hyperscale is well-suited for Big Data because of its 100% Flash storage and high IOPS. Hyperscale servers are a good choice for Hadoop and MapReduce jobs.
