Amazon Web Services Thursday released a solid state drive-backed cloud compute offering that one industry watcher says is among the highest capacity ones on the market.
AWS's High I/O Quadruple Extra Large instance in Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) includes 2TB of local SSD-backed storage with 60.5GB of RAM running on eight virtual cores. AWS says it can achieve as many as 120,000 random read input/output operations per second (IOPS) and between 10,000 and 85,000 write IOPS. In announcing the offering, Amazon officials wrote that it's aimed at NoSQL databases such as Cassandra and MongoDB.
