Enseva expands hardware profiles in cloudBy Chris SeveyBlog, Press Release
Within the Enseva private cloud ecosystem, hardware profiles represent different combinations of CPU, Memory and Disk that consumers can provision. Historically, Enseva supported popular combinations of resources that closely mimicked real hardware. For CPU we had 1 Core, 2 Core, 4 Core, 8 Core, etc.; for Memory we had 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, etc. Disk is then scaled very granularly in that it’s a user-definable size with the differentiator being performance characteristics. Archive Storage provides a cheap and deep platform for data that’s not readily accessed such as backups or historic archives. Standard Storage is great for everyday applications and Performance Storage leverages SSD performance, which is great for SQL databases and other storage-demanding applications requiring high throughput and IOPS.
To ensure our customers continuously get precisely what they’re after, we’ve nearly doubled the number of CPU, Memory and Disk options available within the private cloud platform, thereby providing more flexibility and options than ever before. The majority of these options come from combinations of CPU cores based on a multiple of 6-Cores, and Memory options based on a multiple of 12GB. The new profile options also include larger instance options as well with memory scaling up to 128GB to support the most demanding application requirements.
Below is a comprehensive list of the hardware profiles now available in the Enseva private cloud:
Standard profiles provide a balance of CPU and memory resources.
Compute Optimized Profiles
Compute optimized profiles weigh heavy on the CPU resources but retain the same memory allocations found in the standard profile.
Memory Optimized Profiles
Memory optimized profiles weigh heavy on memory resources, but retain the same CPU allocations found in the standard profile.
