A new cluster with Intel Optane, NVMe and 3.3 GHz processors will appear in the DBaaS MS SQL service.
As part of the service “DBaaS:MS SQL as a service”, a version for working with high-load databases has become available to DataLine customers. The service is based on a Hyper-converged platform: a new cluster of servers provides database operation without using traditional storage systems.
In its composition:
- the Scalable Intel Xeon processor frequency 3.3 GHz;
non-volatile memory Intel Optane DC Persistent memory;
Intel P4510 fast NVMe drives;
2x25g Ethernet network connection for each server.
- At the software level, the platform is supported by Windows Server 2019 and Storage Spaces Direct technology. The server cluster is spread across three machine rooms. The data of each virtual machine is stored in the form of 3 copies, one copy in each of the halls. Storage redundancy increases the availability of the service.
- Thanks to the new platform, customers receive several benefits at once:
- Speed: when placed in a new cluster for a database of up to 4 TB, up to 200,000 iops with delays of less than 1 MS are guaranteed. These indicators are achieved as a result of tests using a write and read block of no more than 4k in size.
Low SOFTWARE cost: Microsoft licenses will cost the customer less by licensing cluster hosts.
Fast scaling: the software-defined infrastructure consists of standard blocks and allows the service provider to quickly increase capacity and performance to meet the needs of customers.
