on AWS

As organizations shift workload from traditional IT environments to the cloud, databases remain one of the most complex components of the tech stack to architect and operate. Databases are highly sensitive to IO tail latency, and traditional cloud infrastructure typically cannot deliver the microsecond latency needed for a great user experience. Volumez is an exceptionally good fit for cloud databases, providing mission-critical reliability and granular QoS that gives DevOps precise control of IO performance.

How it works

AWS offers two categories of block storage: Elastic Block Store and Instance Storage. Instance Storage provides direct access to raw NVMe media, which deliver exceptional throughput and latency, but the media are ephemeral and include no data services such as RAID and snapshots. Elastic Block Store is fully featured software-defined storage managed by AWS that provides data services and zonal resilience.

Volumez allows customers to access the exceptional price-performance of Instance Storage by composing a pure Linux data path on application servers that stores data directly on slices of Instance Storage media. Volumez recommends Is4gen.2xlarge, i4i.4xlarge and i3en.3xlarge instance types for instance storage.

Volumez provides enterprise-grade data services including snapshots, encryption, and multi-zone resilience without the overhead of Elastic Block Store. Attaching a volume to an instance requires simply choosing the volume, node name (instance), and mount point.
