Ephemeral storage for your intensive computing needs
Flexible Computing / Storage
For your Big Data and intense processing needs, some of our instances possess a local storage on the hypervisor (“disk intensive” range).
In some of our Cloud servers optimized for Big Data (D range), local storage is included and there is no additional costs. It is intended for the servers’ boot disk.
It is qualified as an “ephemeral” disk because it is located on the internal disks of the hypervisor where you create your server.
This type of storage is particularly suitable for databases that take full advantage of its low latency and of the possibility of parallelization and the high bandwidth allowed by this type of architecture.
It is possible to configure up to 24 volumes of 1.8TB local for your Big Data and distributed database needs.
