High-speed virtual servers with 100% flash storage
NOTE: The Hyperscale service will be retired as of August 21, 2018. Beginning on this date, Hyperscale Servers will no longer be available. Additionally, no new Hyperscale instances may be purchased as of August 21, 2018.
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.
