VANCOUVER, BC, May 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Peer 1 Hosting, the global web infrastructure and cloud hosting provider, today announced the availability of Hyperscale instances, a new service that combines the high-end compute power of Peer 1's Mission Critical Cloud with 100 percent flash storage. Mission Critical Cloud is Peer 1's enterprise-grade, VMware public cloud environment offered through a strategic partnership between Peer 1 and CenturyLink Cloud.
Hyperscale instances extend the existing capabilities of Mission Critical Cloud to better support distributed workloads and big data analytics operations. They offer the same top-tier CPU and RAM performance found in Mission Critical Cloud's standard servers, but with the added 100 percent flash storage. Customers can typically expect, at a minimum, 15,000 IOPS for applications built on Couchbase, MongoDB and other NoSQL technologies, and performance that is, on average, six times faster than on Mission Critical Cloud's standard storage.
Hyperscale instances are managed just as easily as other virtual machines, and billing, usage, automation and monitoring are all built-in. Instances can be deployed and administered with the same cloud management functions available today on Mission Critical Cloud, and customers can size them to any combination of compute and storage.
"As more and more enterprises rely on big data, there is a clear need for powerful, high-performance public cloud environments that can quickly and cost-effectively store, process and analyze this high volume, variety and velocity of data," said Robert Miggins, senior vice president of business development at Peer 1. "When we launched Mission Critical Cloud, our goal was to provide enterprises with a reliable, sophisticated and secure public cloud environment that would stand up to their rigorous demands while still remaining simple to use. With the new Hyperscale offering, we're extending that mission by helping enterprises run even more mission-critical elements of their business in a public cloud environment."
Hyperscale instances are available in Peer 1's Mission Critical Cloud datacenters in New York, NY; Sterling, VA and Santa Clara, CA.
