INetU and Aerospike Partner to Fuel Performance and Profits for Customers

INetU, the customer-centric cloud company, today announced a partnership with Aerospike to enable quick deployment of its predictable, high-performance in-memory NoSQL database for mission-critical, highly scalable applications. The combined solution is ideal for companies that need the performance and scalability to process big data instantly, such as those in real-time bidding and cross-channel marketing and for accelerating dynamic web portals and mobile applications.

“This is the kind of technical partnership that enables a provider to materially improve its customer’s business as well as its own,” said Carl Brooks, Internet Infrastructure Services Research Analyst at 451 Research. “Aerospike’s interesting approach to high speed database transactions makes it capable of taking certain apps to new levels of performance without simply throwing more money at the same stack - the INetU value is in expediting and provisioning that ability and helping users grow technically and commercially at the same time.”

The combination of Aerospike and INetU enables customers to experience 100% higher performance, when compared to running Aerospike on Amazon Web Services’ i2.4xlarge instances with Solid State Drives (SSDs). By leveraging an INetU environment optimized for Aerospike, running at wire-speed, transactions per second (TPS) rates achieved by the solution include:

  • 140K TPS for a balanced 50% read / 50% write workload
  • 280K TPS for a read heavy 90% read / 10% write workload

The tests were performed on a two-node Aerospike cluster, where each node consisted of a Dell Poweredge server built out with SSD storage. Randomly distributed data consisting of one million records, each with 16-byte string keys and 1.5KB string values were loaded into Aerospike. The cluster was set to a replication factor of two (one master and one replica of the data), and the system performed writes with synchronous replication for immediate consistency.

“Aerospike runs in pure DRAM and in flash for price/performance. We routinely run tests to recommend the best server hardware, SSD models, and cloud infrastructure providers,” said Monica Pal, CMO at Aerospike. “The INetU customer-centric approach provides an optimized solution for our clients with higher levels of support and better performance at a lower cost."

“Customer support and service are top priorities for INetU, and we pride ourselves on ensuring zero downtime and the best possible performance for our customers,” said David Fowler, VP of Marketing at INetU. “Aerospike shares these values and is built for handling big data with speed and scale, making it a natural partner for our platform.”
